CARAWAY, AR (KAIT) -

The city of Caraway will now drug test all city employees.

The council passed the resolution at its last city council meeting.

According to Mayor Barry Riley, several employers drug test their employees so they thought it was only right to test city employees as well.

There was a city meeting Wednesday at 4 p.m. to go over the new drug testing policy and to answer any questions.

Riley said he is not concerned for any current employees, but this will help with new hires and for insurance reasons.
