Auditor does not have the authority to arrest anyone.They can only make reccomendations what happened and who is responsible for it.

county and city officials work hand in hand fleecing the tax paying citizens with more fees, taxes, ordinances, rules, and regulation. And only enforce them on some people while ignoring the select members of their in it for me club. get ya a scanner and listen to the ones being pulled over for traffic violations--take note of the just a warning for folks whose names you recognuize. Then they pull over another person for the same reason, they get a citation.. and the cops and the county have been very busy lately writing tickets, when they aren't tied up checking on a business where a silent alarm has gone off for a private business that should hire their own security people to check on the alarm system sold by them and they make the profit.

County full of arrogant dumasspriks that think the towns are here to support them instead of the county here to support the towns. That backwardsass thinking is putting everyone in jeopardy.

Hey Judge Carney, Mayor Sanders signed a contract. It's not our fault he's stupid enough to give away the farm and now can't pay. His dumb decisions are Blythevilles problems now. Quit negotiating and MAKE HIM PAY! Stop transferring money around MAKE HIM PAY we need our money NOW

Wait till you see what else Blytheville is going to be held accountable for. Blytheville stopped paying a few more debts while Barry was in office and that is why the IRS swooped in. They owe more than people know about. Blytheville will never get those liens off their back because as soon as the IRS lets go there is another big fish waiting to slap a lien on anything they can get their hands on until Blytheville pays the debt owed.
Can't tell you anymore but stick a fork in Blytheville because it is done!

Why would they wait, you can have multiple liens filed against you, heck, you probably have. If thecity owed me money I would want to get on the list if what you say is true, of course the truth has never slowed you down.

When you get past Jonesboro you have Bono and Sedgwick, it doesn't take much to entertain you does it. How are you doing with Ritter?
