WALNUT RIDGE — The Walnut Ridge City Council has voted to repeal an ordinance, resulting in refunds of a fire protection fee for residents connected to the city's water system.

KAIT-TV reports that the council repealed Ordinance 507 Monday night. The ordinance had set up the fee for businesses, homeowners and industries in the town.

Mayor Charles Snapp says people who have been connected to the system for up to three years could receive a refund of about $108. People will receive less than that amount if they've been connected for less than three years.

Businesses could get up to $90.

Snapp says the refunds will cost the city about $240,000.

Citizens have the choice to take the refund or reject it. Unaccepted refunds will be given to the fire department.
