Property Owners React To Fee Assessment For Bankrupt NABORS Landfill

Mar 30, 2018

Without public notice, more than 72,600 property owners in Carroll, Newton, Boone, Baxter, Searcy and Marion counties were assessed an additional property tax fee this spring. The new fee is intended to pay the debt and closure costs for a regional landfill in Baxter County abandoned several years ago by members of the Ozark Mountain Solid Waste District. A series of hastily called hearings, hosted by state legislators and district lawyers, was held this week to address the court-ordered fee.
