The Miller County Quorum Court voted Monday to approve voluntary property tax contributions to help maintain Alex Smith Park and to aid the Miller County Conservation District.

The voluntary commitment of $20 for either the park or the conservation district is in addition to the taxes a property owner owes the county, officials said.

Conservation District Chairperson Nedra Turney attended Monday night's meeting at the courthouse and was thrilled the Quorum Court approved the item.

"We are so pleased. It's wonderful for the conservation district. It means we can do so much more," Turney said.

In other business, the board also approved a request by the Miller County Sheriff's Office to collect fees for providing fingerprinting services, as well as copies of law enforcement incident reports.

The county will charge a $15 fee for fingerprinting and a $10 fee for incident reports.

Miller County Judge Cathy Harrison also announced she will hold a town hall meeting Jan. 21 at the Fouke Community Center.
