Group presses city on street work

Posted By on Fri, Mar 29, 2013 at 7:11 AM

Arkansas Community Organizations has scheduled a tour Saturday of the parts of town where need is greatest for the street work promised by the city's massive sales tax increase. The group has documented the much higher request for help in poorer parts of the city, despite the city's insistence on spreading street money evenly among the wards.

Areas south of Interstate 630 are a particular focus.
