POCAHONTAS, AR (KAIT) - The city of Pocahontas will be increasing fines for misdemeanor or traffic violations.
A new ordinance was enacted this week and will add $20 to each ticket.
City officials are hoping the additional funding will help with the incarceration budget.
Mayor Kary Story says the funding should help supplement the incarceration budget by around $5,000 per month.
