Jonesboro, AR (KAIT)   -- Educating the public on keeping some of our water sources clean and pure made it on Tuesday night's City Council agenda.  

The Jonesboro City Council approved and adopted the stormwater management plan. 

In the plan are educational tools that will be used to educate the public about keeping things like local streams and waterways clean.

"It's a prevention approach to help make sure we have clean water because  our water is re-used and recycled and used for drinking water in some areas," said Public Works Director, Erick Woodruff.

Also at the meeting, the council has approved recommendations made by a committee formed to help the city find a way to honor Dr. Martin Luther King Junior.  Those recommendations include naming the overpass on Stadium Boulevard and naming a new street in his honor when one is put in.

No final decisions or changes were made on Tuesday. 

Mayor Perrin says now the council will study those recommendations and the city may even hold a public hearing for more input on how to honor Dr. Martin Luther King Junior.
