JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

Drivers on Highway 18 coming into Jonesboro, will notice a new signing welcoming them to Jonesboro. 

The City of Jonesboro has installed a new welcome sign just off Highway 18. 

The city had to remove the other sign after the landowner stated he was going to start charging the city $600 rent. 

The city purchased new land for around $15,000 and installed the new sign for everyone to see on their way in from Lake City, and Blytheville areas.
