JONESBORO, Ark. (KAIT) - Accolades continue to pour in for a Jonesboro landlord who gained national recognition for telling his tenants to pay their employees before paying their rent.
On Tuesday, according to a Facebook post, Mayor Harold Perrin and Councilman Chris Moore presented Clay Young with a Key to the City.
Last week, President Trump honored Young for allowing his tenants to skip several months of rent at the beginning of the COVID-19 outbreak.
Mayor Perrin said Young’s act made him “very proud and is exemplary of Jonesboro residents taking care of one another during these difficult times."
