Community meeting on landfill assessment to be held in Marshall

Tuesday, March 13, 2018

A community meeting on the $18 landfill assessment will be held at 6:30 p.m. Saturday, March 17, at the Marshall Community Center. Residents of Carroll, Searcy, Baxter, Boone, Newton and Marion counties are encouraged to attend.

The fee is being charged to property owners in the six counties that are part of the Ozark Mountain Solid Waste District to repay bonds that were issued for the Nabors Landfill in Baxter County, and to pay for the landfill’s closure. Officials have said the $18 annual fee could continue for 30 years or more.

Lawyer Jerry Patterson, members of the state legislature and a representative from Gov. Asa Hutchinson’s office will be present to discuss the issue.

For more information, call Robert Baysinger at 870-448-7426.
