DEC’s appeal of Boykin order dismissed
An appeal of a May 2015 Circuit Court decision by the Tunica County Democratic Executive Committee has been turned back by the Mississippi Supreme Court.
In an order issued June 22, the Court granted a motion by Jacqueline Dishman-Boykin to dismiss the DEC’s appeal. Dishmon-Boykin successfully challenged a March decision by the DEC not to certify her candidacy for the Tunica County Justice Court, Southern District.
Co. utility district still in limbo on past dues
County supervisors delayed action Tuesday on a request from the Tunica County Utility District for $168,000 to help the financially strapped district.
County administrator Michael Thompson said he met with the TCUD board Monday and that he was awaiting more information before making a recommendation at the July 8 Board of Supervisors meeting.
Thompson told the county board that he was researching grant funds that came to Tunica County from FEMA after the 2011 flood.
“That amount may cover their request,” Thompson said.
