Engineer to assess Nickson Apts
Just before Santa made his mad dash to town, the Town of Tunica held a special meeting to discuss two items.
On Dec. 23, the Board of Aldermen opted to retain the services of Point One Strategies to monitor state legislative activity as it pertains to the Town of Tunica. Mayor Chuck Cariker said the next session begins in Jackson on Jan. 8. Last year, the Town employed Point One “to talk and work on our behalf” with state legislators.
Alderman Jack Graves said the town was in uncharted waters and needed to do everything to protect its interests.
Chamber funded through December
The Tunica County Chamber of Commerce and Economic Development Foundation, both led by Lyn Arnold, was granted a brief reprieve this week.
On Dec. 15, supervisors failed to approve a manual check of $17,894.70 to the Chamber but recessed and came back on Monday this week to act on that manual check and several others.
The Board heard Arnold – who serves as Chamber CEO and president of the Foundation – say last week that the dual agency would have to “cease operations by the end of the year without additional allocations.”
