City of Little Rock is instructed by Arkansas lawmakers to save all LITfest documents



Little Rock, Arkansas – The City of Little Rock has been asked to keep all LITfest-related records by the Arkansas Legislative Joint Committee.

Sen. Ronald Caldwell, R-Wynne, the chair of the committee, acknowledged that one lawmaker made the initial request, but he would not identify that lawmaker until he had obtained authorization to do so.

Bruce Moore, the Little Rock City Manager, was contacted by phone earlier this month with the request, and Moore agreed to keep the documents, according to Caldwell.

Caldwell acknowledged that neither an official request for an audit nor an investigation have been filed.

Just a few days before it was scheduled to begin, LITfest was postponed due to controversy.

The city still does not know when they will receive the sponsorship money that was gathered for the festival as of October 17.
