County supervisors set tax levy, get budget overview
Citizens and supervisors got a bit more clarity at Tuesday’s Board meeting, and taxpayers got a bit of good news – the 2015-2016 county tax levy will be slightly lower than last year’s.
Near the end of a long meeting, the Board approved an overall levy of 89.49 mills, which is up slightly due to increases requested by the Tunica County School District and the Yazoo-Mississippi Delta Levee Board. But the portion of that overall levy set for county government will be 2.5 mills lower.
County administrator Michael Thompson said there were ‘a few adjustments to be made” to the county budget, and though no paper copies were made available to the public this week, Thompson read out totals for the various funds, including:
• $25,064,613 for the general fund;
• $5.4 million for the road fund;
• $3.4 million for the General Obligation Bond Fund.
