City's legislative proposal would allow quicker action on code violations

Posted By on Mon, Apr 7, 2014 at 10:29 AM


The city of Little Rock has drawn up a proposed  legislative agenda for 2015 that would change state law to allow staff to act more quickly on code enforcement violations, something residents have been pulling for, and allow the city to place liens on properties that require corrections when landowners refuse to act in a timely manner.

Approved by the City Board on April 1, the proposal would also ask the state to increase funding to the Arkansas Housing Trust Fund and create guidelines for disbursing those funds. 

The package will be submitted to the Arkansas Municipal League for consideration April 15. If the league rejects some of the proposals, the city will work directly with legislators.
