Talks Continue Today for Water Park
Officials with the Jonesboro Parks and Recreation Department will hold a town hall meeting tonight to show the design concepts for a water park, and you can tell the City what you think.
In Paragould, residents have been cooling off from the summer heat for years, at a price tag of $15 million. That cost of staying cool wasn't cheap, but Jonesboro's water park isn't expected to cost as much.
Tonight's meeting will be held at 6:00 p.m. at the Forum in downtown Jonesboro.
For more information, you can contact Jason Wilke at 870-933-4604.

The move would have combined class 7A and class 6A into one class, with two state championships.
