Town officials discuss new fees
The Town of Tunica will be exploring ways to add revenue, following a discussion at the Board of Aldermen meeting on Jan. 21.
Mayor Chuck Cariker told aldermen that the town’s share of gaming revenue was down $73,000 from this time last year and is $40,000 less than what the town has budgeted. Cariker said sales tax revenue has been the saving grace, making up $23,000 of the shortfall. That leaves the town out of balance on their budget by $17,000.
“We have to try and increase our revenue or cut expenses,” Cariker said.
