Jobs, Jobs, Jobs
We have been trying to find out just exactly what the unemployment rate is for Tunica County. For sure it is over 15%. Maybe 18%? So, what can be done about it?
Here are a couple of ideas:
1). Statutorily the Chancery Clerk is paid a base $52,000 with all fees collected capped at $90,000. The Board of Supervisors have added to the Chancery Clerk’s responsibilities the jobs of Inventory Clerk and Law Librarian for which there are salaries of $40,000 and $5400 respectively. How about combining these two jobs and creating a job for one of our unemployed Tunicans?
