Alderman Preston Lewis asking for the return of Maumelle rings

Alderman Preston Lewis asking for the return of Maumelle rings
MAUMELLE, Ark. – Alderman Preston Lewis of Maumelle is leading residents to call upon Maumelle’s city government to bring back a former landmark in the Maumelle Rings. Since the 1980s, Maumelle residents traveling state highway 100 (Maumelle Blvd.) would always see two separate concrete rings marking the city limit boundaries on both sides of town. Road construction projects though forced the relocation of the rings. For the past decade the rings have been sitting on a trailer behind Maumelle’s Public Works facility.  Statement from Alderman Lewis: "I have asked Mayor Mike Watson about restoration of the Maumelle Rings since 2013, but I have been unable to get him to take action on the issue. For over a year, I wasn’t even told they were still in existence. Finally, I heard they were still in Maumelle, so I went and found them.
