Arkansas Levee Task Force Appointments

In June, as a result of catastrophic flooding along a number of rivers in Arkansas in the last few years, Governor Asa Hutchinson issued Executive Order 19-10 to create the Arkansas Levee Task Force to study and analyze the current conditions of the state’s levees. During June’s historic flooding, several levees were impacted including a breach to the Holla Bend Levee in Yell County.

The first meeting of the Arkansas Levee Task Force will take place at 1:30pm on Friday. The location of the meeting will be announced later this week.

Yesterday, Governor Hutchinson announced the full list of appointments to the task force. Among them: Senator Jason Rapert, Representative Mary Bentley, Representative David Hillman, Jackson County Judge Jeff Phillips and Tim Ralston representing Pope and Conway Counties.       MORE
