County board opens 2016 tax rolls to public
Tunica County taxpayers are invited to examine the 2016 tax rolls, which are now open for inspection in the Chancery Clerk’s office in the courthouse until August 1.
Tax Assessor and Collector Norma Anderson presented the rolls to the Board of Supervisors on July 5. Anderson said the rolls this year, which reflect the assessed value of real and personal property, public utilities, mobile homes and motor vehicles for the 2015 tax year, show the effect of the loss of the former Harrah’s Casino property. Harrah’s closed in June 2014 but remained on the rolls for that year.
Long awaited repairs to River Road start next week
The exact date isn’t quite certain, but next week should see the start of a project to smooth out the main entrance road into downtown Tunica.
County engineer Daniel Murphy, who helped town officials formulate a plan to repair River Road, said contractors Lehman-Roberts plan to begin one day next week, unless he is notified of a delay.
The process to remove the layers of old asphalt down to the concrete, mill out the joints and then put new asphalt down over the joints should take about two weeks and will involve closing portions of the road at times.
“They’re going to close a third of the street at a time during daytime hours,” Murphy said Tuesday. “It would be hard to do under traffic.”
