Bartlett Senior Center Opens New Exercise Room

After much anticipation, on Wednesday, May 11, the Bartlett Senior Center opened their new exercise room. This will give the center an additional 576 sq ft of space to accommodate their growing membership and the high interest in physical fitness. The space being used was once where the jail cells were located when the building was used as Bartlett City Hall and where court was held. This expansion will also provide additional space to expand the billiards room with space that was formally the exercise room. 

Mayor McDonald along with the Center Staff and members were on hand to cut the ribbon.

Bartlett Police Clean Up Remnants of Meth Lab

By Dawn Boone 
Several units of the Bartlett Police Department were very busy Thursday, March 17, cleaning up the remnants of a meth lab located in west Bartlett. On one of Bartlett's busier residential streets a deadly drug had taken up residence. Neighbors were surprised as crime scene tape went up. The police on scene donned gas masks and began the clean up. Containers started coming out of the home and the Clandestine Lab Response Team Truck was there to haul the containers away.
Bartlett Police work hard to keep meth (methamphetamine) out of Bartlett, but the drug knows no boundaries. It is an ongoing battle.
The home the lab was taken out of in west Bartlett is about 100 yards from the school bus stop for neighborhood kids. Neighbors were all shocked that a meth lab had once been in operation so close to where their children play.
This is still an ongoing investigation by the Bartlett Police Department.

The Christmas Tree at City Hall was absolutely beautiful again this year. The village that was added last year was back again adding to it's elegance and charm. Alan Helms and family are responsible for the fantastic addition of the village that was on display to lift our Christmas spirit. The Helms take great care in presenting the village which has been on display at different locations over the years before coming to Bartlett during the holiday season. Each item on display worked, including a miniature ferriswheel and other fanciful, interesting things.
