Mayor makes case against funding cut
In an address this week to supervisors, Town of Tunica mayor Chuck Cariker responded to recent action by county officials to halve the portion of gaming tax revenues the town receives.
Cariker first answered the county’s contention that the town has failed to pursue economic development with the money it receives.
“Most of the economic development has gone to the north end of the county,” Cariker said, referring to the 2000 plus acre Metro Mega Site near Robinsonville, where GreenTech Automotive is building an electric car plant, and two industrial projects adjacent to it, Schulz Extruded Products and Feuer Powertrain.
“In the 1970s, the county and city created the industrial park south of town,” Cariker explained. “We have a large expenditure of money we’ve made on a site that seems to be abandoned.”
