County Judge’s Report

Thursday, January 29th, 2015
The theft of road signs could result in serious injury or death, if an ambulance crew has difficultly locating a residence.  Theft of county signs is punishable by a fine of up to $1,000. Anyone having knowledge of stolen signs is asked to contact the Sheriff’s Office at 367-6211.

The theft of road signs could result in serious injury or death, if an ambulance crew has difficultly locating a residence.
Theft of county signs is punishable by a fine of up to $1,000. Anyone having knowledge of stolen signs is asked to contact the Sheriff’s Office at 367-6211.

I’d like to start this week by reminding everyone that theft of county road signs is a very serious issue, more so than you might realize. Here’s why: Suppose an ambulance crew gets dispatched as the result of a 911 call about an apparent heart attack. The victim, who might be your mom, dad or grandparent, lives in a rural area of the county and the sign marking the road has been stolen. As a result, the ambulance crew has a hard time finding the house, wasting precious minutes. Maybe the victim dies because he didn’t get medical attention soon enough. If you are found to be in possession of that stolen road sign, the county could attempt to pursue charges against you for involuntary manslaughter. Theft of county road signs is punishable by fines of up to $1,000, and we do investigate these matters. If you have any information about stolen road signs, please contact the sheriff’s office at 367-6211.

Congressman Mike Ross Visits Monticello

Tuesday, October 26th, 2010

Congressman Mike Ross visited Monticello last Thursday, and toured the Hood Packaging facility.

Congressman Ross was very complimentary of the efforts made by the MEDC, AEDC, the City of Monticello, and the Governor’s Fast Action Closing Fund, for making the transfer of a manufacturing machine to the Monticello facility, which has now created 15 job openings.

Congressman Ross also attended a fundraising event at the home of Drs. Tim and Sylvia Simon.

Ross Secures $366,564 in House for Drew County Disaster Education & Warning Sirens

Thursday, July 9th, 2009

U.S. Representative Mike Ross (AR-04) has successfully secured $366,564 for Drew County in the Fiscal Year 2010 House Department of Homeland Security Appropriations Bill. The bill recently passed the full U.S. House of Representatives.

Ross said the funds will be used to provide weather and other related disaster education as well as to purchase outdoor weather sirens that will alert residents of approaching severe weather.

“Given the unpredictability of Arkansas weather, we should be as prepared as possible for any number of emergency weather situations,” said Ross. “This investment in Drew County will help local leaders prepare for the worst by working to reduce the loss of property and to protect lives during a storm.” (more…)
