The Faulkner County Quorum Court will continue its definition of houses that receive 911 services when it meets at 7 p.m. Tuesday in courtroom C of the main courthouse.
The court approved an ordinance during its August meeting that would require and new residences or businesses to be assigned by the Faulkner County 9-1-1 office before being allowed to receive utility services. Also, the ordinance requires the circuit clerk to wait for approval from the 9-1-1 office before accepting any plat map from individuals or businesses.
The court will consider an amendment to the earlier ordinance that would require a written verification from the Faulkner County OEM/911 Office that an address has been assigned in order to receive utility services.
“FEMA has become very strict in recent years,” Faulkner County Judge Preston Scroggin said during the August meeting. “And we are just trying to keep up and make everything simpler. We do not want to cause any problems for houses in the flood plain.”
In addition, the court will consider the approval of about $90,000 of funds being transferred within departments, including criminal justice, circuit court, county clerk and county judge.
