BLYTHEVILLE COURIER NEWS VOL. XI,IV—NO. 29 Biythevllle Dallj Newp BlythevUle Courier THE DOMINANT NEWSPAPER OF NORTHEAST ARKANSAS AND SOUTHEAST MISSOURI Blytlicvlllc Herald Mississippi Valley L-ttder IjLYTlIKVlUAO, ARKANSAS, FRIDAY, Al'KIl, U!>, I!) 17 SINGLE COPIES FIVE CENTS Appeals Decision Jf Muny Court In uarbageFeeCase May Seek To Enjoin City From Collections Until Settlement Attorney Claude Cooper this morning said h c hud filed a for- 111:11 appeal taking to circuit Court the decision in which Municipal Judge Graham Sudbury Wednesday upheld the city ordinance levv- in« a monthly garbage fee and lined two Hhlhovillc men lor nonpayment of the assessment. Mr. Cooper was defense counsel for Sam w. Rhodes and Bur: Davidson, who were fined $15 and S10 and costs, respectively, for refusal lo nay the 75 cents per month fee. Their suit was the first major court attack on this ordinance contesting the city's right to collet this lee. Tile Circuit Court appeal was filed yesterday, Mr. Cooper datd. A similar appeal from Municipal Court was heard at the Circuit Court session here early this month but the case. Involving Ru- fiis S:\icr on charges of non-payment of the garbage fee, was dismissed on motion of the city attorney. Mr. Cooper also said he may file an appeal in chancery Coirrt to ^»;oin enforcement of the ordi- iiancc. This appeal which if granted would prohibit enforcement of tliis ordinance by the city, may be filc c i within the next three or T"6ur days, he said. At their hearing. Mr. Rhodes and Mr. Davidson contended through counsel that a householder who disposes of garbage in his o;\n manner was not liable for payment of the fee and that the assessment, was an "illegal exaction" because it wa.s a revenue-raising and not a regulatory measure. The court, however, upheld the ordinance against both claims. Burdette 4-H Youth Top Place In Fat Calf Sale At Osceola CSCEOLA. April 25. — Eui-oiie of Kciscr.
