Supervisor files request for records
District 2 supervisor Cedric Burnett, frustrated that the county board has not received financial updates in more than nine months, filed a Freedom of Information request for public records on September 17 to Circuit Clerk Sharon Reynolds, whose staff hand delivered it to Chancery Clerk Rechelle Siggers’ office and to the county administrator.
“As you know, I am the elected supervisor for Supervisors’ District 2 in Tunica County, Mississippi,” Burnett wrote. “I have repeatedly requested certain documents at the meetings which will give information upon which to base decisions and votes.
“These are documents which I understand are required by law to be maintained and provided monthly. To date, I have not received any of the information.
“Given this, I am making a formal request for public records.”

“We pump everybody’s gas,” said Alex Obad, owner of the recently-opened Alex’s Full Service Station, located at 1364 Edwards Ave.
The new business not only sells gas; customers can pick up snacks, sandwiches, drinks, and tobacco products, Obad said.
