Media Advisory

 

 

Little Rock Environmental Court Mark Judge Leverett today found that the Stonecrest Apartment complex at 9700 Baseline Road is a threat to the health, safety and welfare of the community. Judge Leverett has ordered that Stonecrest be vacated, boarded and secured, in its entirety, immediately. The order is attached.

 

Stonecrest is owned by G&K Solutions, which is based in Central Arkansas. The owners of this company are Grant Exton and Jeff Davis – who are represented by Attorney Keith Vaughn out of Jacksonville.

 

“This is part of an aggressive and ongoing process to hold rental property owners accountable,” said City Manager Bruce Moore. “This apartment complex has multiple code violations and is in deplorable shape. We will continue to bring these kinds of cases to court in order to mandate the upkeep of property in the City.”

 

Code Officers with the Department of Neighborhoods and Housing will conduct the boarding and securing. Deputy City Attorney D. Clifford Sward will report back to Judge Leverett on January 23rd regarding the progress that has been made at Stonecrest. The City Attorney’s Office has also filed a complaint in Circuit Court. That case does not have a hearing date set yet.
