County coffers are thin
County administrator Clifton Johnson displayed a snapshot of Tunica County’s financial picture at the Board of Supervisor’s July 13 meeting.
Johnson said District 2 Supervisor Cedric Burnett had asked for the report showing “where we are today.”
Johnson said Tunica County receives 81 percent of gaming revenue each month. That funding is divided between the general fund and the road fund. The general fund receives 72 percent of gaming revenue, while the road fund is allocated nine percent. The average amount generated by gaming revenue each month is $1.8 million.
