Engineer to assess Nickson Apts
Just before Santa made his mad dash to town, the Town of Tunica held a special meeting to discuss two items.
On Dec. 23, the Board of Aldermen opted to retain the services of Point One Strategies to monitor state legislative activity as it pertains to the Town of Tunica. Mayor Chuck Cariker said the next session begins in Jackson on Jan. 8. Last year, the Town employed Point One “to talk and work on our behalf” with state legislators.
Alderman Jack Graves said the town was in uncharted waters and needed to do everything to protect its interests.
Chamber funded through December
The Tunica County Chamber of Commerce and Economic Development Foundation, both led by Lyn Arnold, was granted a brief reprieve this week.
On Dec. 15, supervisors failed to approve a manual check of $17,894.70 to the Chamber but recessed and came back on Monday this week to act on that manual check and several others.
The Board heard Arnold – who serves as Chamber CEO and president of the Foundation – say last week that the dual agency would have to “cease operations by the end of the year without additional allocations.”
Santa arrived at Resorts Casino on December 13, just in time for the Christmas party for employees’ children and grandchildren.
Sheriff Hamp: Drive sober or get pulled over
The Tunica County Sheriff’s Office will be out in full force during the holidays and will join other state and local law enforcement agencies to make Mississippi highways and roads safer during the holiday season. Various checkpoints and saturations will be set up to detain those who choose to drink and drive and hopefully deter others from drinking and driving.
Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over is a public safety campaign initiative involving state, city and county law enforcement officers across the United States. It will be implemented during a three week period encompassing the Christmas and New Year’s Holidays (December 18, 2014 through January 3, 2015).
