Little Rock already preparing for winter weather

Little Rock already preparing for winter weather


LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV)— On Tuesday night, the Little Rock board of directors approved a plan that will bring two new salt storage facilities to the city.

The city says the compounds will quicken response times when bad weather hits, and will also keep salt more readily available for road crews. It's in an effort to prevent problems like they saw this past winter.

"We have been in some serious discussions [about what to do this winter] already," said Little Rock Public Works coordinator Mark Jacobi.

Jacobi says the city has plans to add four more plows to its snow-fighting fleet as well.

"[It] kind of helps us in our initial response time - it also helps the drivers have closer turnaround times to the materials to refill their trucks," Jacobi elaborated.

Temporary Housing Assistance for Tornado Victims

Temporary Housing Assistance for Tornado Victims

The Arkansas Development Finance Authority (ADFA) will authorize approval for the Owners of Low Income Housing Tax Credit, (The Owner) rental units in Arkansas to provide temporary emergency housing for low income families.  The approval allows Owners to immediately move-in low income families without providing all the necessary documentation required under section 42 of the Internal Revenue Code.  

The approval will only assist low income families that were displaced from their principal place of residence as a result of the major tornado disaster in Faulkner County and the newly expanded Presidentially-declared disaster counties that include Pulaski, White and Randolph.
