Illegal Dumping Ordinance Passes At Craighead County Quorum Court Meeting

Jonesboro, AR (KAIT) -- Efforts to stop illegal dumping got even stronger tonight in Craighead County.

Craighead County Quorum Court members passed an ordinance giving county officials the authority to clean up unsightly illegal dumping sites.

Craighead County Judge Dale Haas says the ordinance gives officials the right to enter property where people have refused to clean it up.

The county can go in and clean it up, and then county officials can bill them for the expense of the cleanup.

Also at Monday night's quorum court meeting, court members took six bids for the timber harvesting and clearing project associated with the Bono Lake Project.

County officials and the county's engineering firm will review the bids on Tuesday.

Judge Dale Haas says he is confident a local business will get the bid.
