LAUREL HILL — Next week, residents can speak out on whether the city should take a vote on dissolving the city.

A town hall meeting is 6 p.m. Tuesday at First Baptist Church of Laurel Hill. A city council meeting will follow.

City leaders chose the church because they expect a large crowd, Council Chairperson Larry Hendren said.

"We want to get the community's input and hear what they have to say," he said.

Each resident who wants to speak on the matter will have three minutes to do so, City Clerk Nita Miller said.

The council must take several steps for a possible dissolution to appear on the ballot, Hendren said.

"We want to make sure that we do it right the first time and not have any regrets afterwards," he said.
