JONESBORO, Ark. (KAIT) - Both the Jonesboro City Council and Jonesboro Public Works Committee met for the first time in 2020, Tuesday night.

The city council postponed an ordinance that would ban junk or salvage yards in the city indefinitely.

If you recall, early December, the city and TRG came to an agreement to move the scrap yard from Flint Street to the industrial area in the eastern part of Jonesboro.

However, now that it’s been postponed, Mayor Harold Perrin said the city will go back to the drawing board.

Also, before the whole council met, members of the public works committee approved a resolution requiring yard waste to be placed in paper bags instead of plastic.

The change will help expedite the collection and disposal of all yard waste including leaves and grass clippings.
