Ozark Mountain Solid Waste District Trash Tax Ruled Illegal



A temporary property tax collected in the six-county Ozark Mountain Solid Waste District has been declared illegal in five counties. So far, more than $2.3 million has been collected to pay back bondholders who invested over $12 million in a failed Baxter County landfill purchased by the waste district in 2005.
