County inviting input on proposed ordinances

The Faulkner County government is asking for public input on pending ordinances.

In an effort to capture constructive comments on proposed county ordinances before they become law, County Judge Allen Dodson’s administration and the Quorum Court are inviting the public to review ordinances online at www.faulknercounty.org/civil-attorney and send emails with their comments, complaints or suggestions. Pending ordinances can be found at the bottom of the webpage.

“We often get good comments from citizens about ordinances that are passed after we’ve published them, and we would like to get those comments before we’ve passed them so we don’t have to amend them,” County Attorney David Hogue said.

Comments can be emailed to david.hogue@faulknercounty.org.
