Faulkner County residents who want to ask questions of the Arkansas Attorney General or file a consumer complaint can do so without driving to Little Rock because the AG will offer mobile office hours next month, including a stop in Conway.
From 10-11:30 a.m. Feb. 15, Rutledge and other staff members will be on hand at the Conway Senior Center at 705 E. Siebenmorgen Road.
The second-term attorney general piloted the Mobile Office initiative after she was elected in 2014, serving 3,300 Arkansans in all 75 counties.
“Rutledge believes face-to-face conversations are the best way to truly hear from Arkansans,” spokesman Amanda Priest said. “The Attorney General Mobile Offices assist constituents with consumer-related issues by filing consumer complaints against scam artists as well as answering questions about the office and the other services it offers to constituents.”
Local law enforcement will join Rutledge and her team on Feb. 15 at the site to have a drug takeback day where “Arkansans are encouraged to bring their old, unused or expired prescription medications,” Priest said.
Rutledge partnered with the Cooperative Extension Service and law enforcement agencies statewide to host drug takeback days during her first term. Over the four-year period, nearly 620 pounds of medications were collected at mobile units, according to the AG office.
Other mobile office hours will be conducted in February in Garland, Saline, Lonoke, Arkansas, Lincoln and Jackson counties.
