Winds of change rippling thru county waters
Times, they are a changin’ in Tunica County.
On Friday, Oct. 1, the Board of Supervisors formally acknowledged the retirement of Tax Assessor Betty Gayle Fields. They appointed Ken Murphree to fill the position until county elections are held in November 2011. A resolution honoring Fields’ years of service was read at a reception following the board meeting. (See resolution in next week’s edition.)
On Monday, Oct. 4, supervisors learned that county voting districts may change due to U.S. Census figures. Board attorney Andy Dulaney explained that the census bureau keeps ongoing county population estimates. Based on those, Tunica County will have to redistrict, but Dulaney noted there is a “low threshold” for changes. The official U.S. Census report is slated to be released by April 1, 2011.
