According to Preston Means, assistant commissioner of Revenue, the Manila and Leachville revenue offices will not be closed as of now.
The Manila and Leachville revenue offices were scheduled to close as of Dec. 1 in an effort to cut costs. The Manila office is open Monday through Wednesday at Manila City Hall and the Leachville office is open Thursday and Friday at Leachville City Hall.
"We have made an offer to keep the offices open. We will pick up the cost of supplies if the local government will pick up the remaining cost such as rent, utilities and data connections to Little Rock. I've talked to a number of folks about Manila and we are waiting to get back with them," Means said.
