State To Allow Some Revenue Offices to Remain Open

November 24, 2003 - Posted at 10:49 a.m. CDT

LITTLE ROCK, AR - Some state revenue offices slated for closure may remain open if local communities pick up the cost for running them.

The offices are to close December 1.  But state finance director Richard Weiss says the offices could stay open if cities agree to pay for rent, utilities and janitorial bills, and computer lines.

He says the state would pay for salaries and supplies.

A half-dozen communities...Charleston, Hazen, Lake City, Maumelle, Mountainburg and Rector, already have worked out plans to keep local revenue offices open.  Most of the offices would move into local courthouses.

A half-dozen others are negotiating with the department.  Revenue offices in Atkins, Dover, Green Forest, Mammoth Spring, Smackover and Vilonia would remain open after the deadline if negotiations are continuing.
