R’ville library ready for users
When the new Robinsonville community center opened November 1, one of the jewels in its crown still needed a bit of polishing. But at last, the final component of the multi-purpose facility is in place.
The Robinsonville branch of First Regional Library cut the ribbon last Thursday, January 15, to officially declare that the space is “fully operational and functioning,” according to Tunica/Robinsonville libraries branch manager Quatasha Jackson-Sow.
Town board ups water, sewer rates
According to municipal officials, to date just over $460,000 of gaming tax revenue has not been passed on to the Town by Tunica County. On Jan. 20, the Board of Aldermen voted unanimously to tap into another revenue stream.
The board action will start the process to raise water and sewer rates for customers outside the corporate limits.
Mayor Chuck Cariker distributed data on water usage and energy costs for wells, lift stations and the wastewater treatment plant.
Cariker said Deputy Clerk Charles Hailey selected three months at random and generated a breakdown on residential, commercial, sprinkler/pool, church/non profit, government, school, large commercial and hotel accounts. The three month average shows that 34 percent of water is used by customers inside the corporate limits and 66 percent of water is used outside of the corporate limits.
