The Finance and Personnel Committee of the Bryant City Council met Tuesday evening to discuss the city's finances so far in the year.
The aldermen are recommending that the City Council discuss buying the right-of-way for the Echo Lake North Road.
Residents of the area say they are excited about this project and even recommended an appraiser, said Monty Ledbetter, public works director.
The city will have to spend about $250,000, which is already in the budget, to purchase all of the land for the right-of-way, Ledbetter said.
