Arkansas Readers: Beware of the Benton County Nuisance Ordinance

Benton County Nuisance Ordinance:

Whether or not you agree with the purpose of this ordinance, you should read it over. It appears to be poorly written and likely to have many un-intended consequences.

"most residents even if in favor of some type of ordinance, counseled that the county take it's time and re-write the ordinance into a clear concise document that addresses real, existing problems. They did not want a wide open document such as the existing one under which anything could be declared a nuisance and which would escalate feuds between neighbors."
