The Arkansas Water Provider Legislative Task Force has scheduled a meeting for January 8th in Room 151 of the State Capitol.
The meeting is scheduled to begin at 1:00 p.m.
Members will do a final review of the draft report as required by the legislation establishing the Task Force.
The Task Force was created by Act 1056 during the 89th Arkansas General Assembly. The legislation declared a number of findings regarding the water utilities provision of water to state residents. Issues associated with areas served, ability to operate monopolies, importance of water supplies to economic development, requirements to supply out-of-area customers, and other matters were addressed.
For legislators who serve on the Senate and House City, County & Local Affairs Committees, those committees will meet jointly the morning of January 8th at 9:30 a.m. in Room B, 5th Floor, MAC Building.
