Aldermen set April 11 preservation hearing
The Town of Tunica took the next step toward establishment of a local historic district at Tuesday’s Board of Aldermen meeting. The board set an April 11 hearing to consider the boundaries of the district, which were recommended to the board by the town’s Historic Preservation Commission.
“The Commission is eager to move forward,” town planner Bob Barber reported. “Tunica has a great downtown, and these preservation programs, if administered properly, are a great benefit.”
One injured in shooting
Details are sketchy surrounding an incident that sent an individual to an area hospital on Friday, March 22.
According to a press release issued by the Tunica County Sheriff’s Department, deputies responded to a report of a shooting at Kirby Estates near Robinsonville at 11:35 a.m. on March 22. The lone victim reported that he had been shot by a family member, who is listed as a juvenile.
Blazing the trail
Downtown Tunica hosted the official kickoff for Tunica Main Street’s bicycle trail system, a 13 mile ride west to the base of the levee near Mhoon Landing Park and back to town.
Supervisors seek grant, bond reissue
Two public notices submitted from Tunica County and running in this week’s paper (see Page 5) may pique citizens’ interest because they deal with loans and grant funds. But according to Board attorney Andy Dulaney, in the Notice to Taxpayers concerning validation of bonds, citizens are being notified that county officials plan to refinance two prior bond issues, in order to save money.
“The county is not adding more debt,” Dulaney explained. “This refinancing will actually result in a net savings to the county of $200,000.”
