OZARK MOUNTAIN SOLID WASTE DISTRICT INFORMATION

UPDATE ON $18 FEE CASE:

MARION COUNTY CITIZENS -

UPDATE to the Ozark Mountain Solid Waste District $18 FEE CASE:  Judge Fox apparently ruled in a hearing held in Pulaski County on June 22, 2020, that the collection of the $18 fee could be terminated effective immediately.  Any fees being collected for this year will remain with the Collector's to be refunded to the taxpayers.  The distribution of the fees collected in the two previous years will need to be determined.  The Receiver (whose client is the bondholders and is paid by OMSWD) will remain in place until the sale of the OMSWD property occurs.  The Judge has ordered the Receiver to stop the defense of the fee and appeal of the 5 circuit court rulings which found the feel to be an illegal exaction (not a tax or fee voted on by the people of the various counties). There are still financial arrangements and will post information here as it becomes available.
