HELENA, AR - Members of the team helping the cities of Helena and West Helena merge on the first of January met with representatives of the Arkansas Municipal League yesterday.

The non-partisan group represents Arkansas cities and towns.  The mayor-elect of the new city of Helena-West Helena, James Valley, also was there.

The league told the new city officials some of the legal issues they would face as a city council, such as how to conduct a meeting and how to work on budgets and finances.
