Brushes with Stardom
Storm shelter plans proceed
A $3.3 million storm shelter/community center will go forward, after a thumbs up Tuesday from county supervisors.
Local emergency manager Randy Stewart said the facility would accommodate 1,764 people.
“I would like for the Board to consider moving forward,” Board president James Dunn said.
“Is there a location?” District 3 supervisor Phillis Williams asked.
“The town has not acted on our request,” replied Board attorney Andy Dulaney.
Sign law gets review
The town of Tunica wants to work with businesses, not against them. That was the message conveyed to about 30 merchants who gathered recently at Town Hall.
Late last month, Mayor Chuck Cariker summoned business owners for information about Tunica’s sign regulations.
“Things have gotten out of control...some window signs and temporary signs that have become permanent,” Cariker said. Town planner Bob Barber them outlined key points of the 2003 ordinance.
“Like any ordinance, if it is not systematically enforced, things deteriorate,” Barber said.
“(The ordinance) is there not to penalize anyone from doing business, but to maximize the business climate for everyone.”
