The City of De Queen is making more information available to its residents on the city’s web site, located at www.cityofdequeen.com.
Many of the forms and documents requested by the public can be located with the aid of a computer, smart phone or tablet.
In the Parks section, you can find the schedule for youth sports programs, including Tee-Ball, which is going on now. A new page for the municipal swimming pool lists the hours, fees and schedule for swimming lessons.
In the map room, you can find maps of the city’s four trash routes, a current map of land use zones and city wards. You can also find the Land Use Planning Book which lists what type of developments can be in each of the city zones. There is even a city map which visitors can print out and use for their own purposes.
The City’s web site is linked with companion sites for Sevier County and the De Queen-Sevier County Chamber of Commerce. If you are interested in starting a business, each of these three sites has a listing of commercial real estate property which is available, along with contact information.
There is a directory of city departments, along with contact information for department heads.
Burial records can be found on the link for Redmen Cemetery, which is operated by the city. This information is not continuously updated, but it can be beneficial to genealogy researchers and history buffs.
