Ozark Mountain Solid Waste District Property Tax Collection Halted

Sep 8, 2020

Pulaski County Judge Tim Fox has stopped a temporary 30-year $18 annual tax levied against property owners in the six-county Ozark Mountain Solid Waste District. The court-ordered tax has been collected since 2018 to pay off investors in the district's failed regional garbage dump, as well as the Arkansas Department of Environmental Qualilty to clean it up. Fred Woehl, Jr., OMSWD board chair and Boone County Justice of the Peace, provides insight.
