FR1ZZELL "TIMES Staff Writer ; A seminar on "County Government in Arkansas" held this week delved into the emerging -roles ot county government and of the citizen in countv government. Sponsored by the Association rburn Speak rnment Seminar Fulerlon paintled out that when the 1874 Arkansas Const E* Uitiou was adopted, the state was agricultural and rural in no large cities.

Programs ranged from talks on "County- Government Pror [ems -- Present and Future" - to "Regional Solutions to Common Problems." A .videotape showing of the film. "The New ' Q u o r u m Court." set the stage for the day's program. Two speakers participated In the discussion on "Emerging " Patterns of Government". Kred Fullerton. the Administrative Assistant of the Association of 'J Arkansas Counties, talked about A G Kdwards Emerson Frontier Air ... !L Gen Growth Gordon Jewelry . provided lhat county officials were elected independent of each other, and that county government had to depend on the state for revenue. No provisions were made for dealing with incorporated areas. Fullerton rioted that as the state grew" En''size and as certain areas became urban in nature, the Constitution limited county government's ability to leal with (be new problems. Therefore, Fullcrton said be aw as the "most far-reaching" of the change in county govern ment under Amendment 55 th ho\v county - - been and ho g w it , overnment -has will be in January when Amendment 55 and ., .,,, implementing £*3ake effect. ?£ ~ 7 legislation Pair FROM PAGE ONE) I 5j-March 29.

This new system differs from the current one for cities that allows, at tbe local level, only those actions specifically permitted in the Constitution. Fulerton also called attention to th e increased prof es sional- i s m , i n county government and told the Public Administration students in the audience that county government will need people with lechnical know-how in administrative positions.

In beginning to answer that question, be pointed "out lhat very little research has been done on what degree of citizen participation there has. been, in the past at the county government level. . Thorburn said.

Rut his further comments indi- cat%3 that' for this to be true, the new county government system has lo take action that will promote local'participation. For people to get involved in county government, they have g o v , to feel that government affects their lives. "If. we want to in : crease citizen , participation, jhejcpunty government has iotperform, must assert itself so' tKe" citizen will see tbe effect of county government on his Hfe r " he said.

WASHINGTON (AP) -- The ^oarent companies of the South- "tl-fern railroad and the Missouri ^Pacific railroad today an- i s nounced they are studying a ·^possible merger that would *£creaie a new rail system Quorum Court should county officials more and accessible to the public. He said- (he large ' number of Justices of the Peace In the past made it hard for people ;o ~:keep'- (rack oF who was representing them. Also, the fact that the JPs met only once a year greatly reduced their visibility to the public, Thorburn said. To promote citizen participation, Thorburn said (be neu jp s . _ w ho make up the Quorum Courl -- must accept tbe responsibility for being visi : ble and accessible to the public. "Trie greater the visibility and accessibility," be 'said, "the greater the likelihood of public participation." In order for people lo want to participate in county govcrn- mentj Thorburn also contended that the people must feel a sense of community at the county level. Fie noted that participation in Ihe affairs of a local community is greater in those areas where there is a well-deEined political unil in which people can participate. He said Ihe new Quorum Court must make an integrated, coordinated effort to make Ihe county an important part of the community.
