County presents budget
Tunica County’s proposed budget of $69 million drew remarks from one citizen during a public hearing on Aug. 31.
Barbara Tuchel, speaking on behalf of the Tunicans for Transparency in Government Committee, asked the board how the transfer of the RiverPark from the county to Tourism Commission would work.
Board attorney Andy Dulaney said the Tourism Commission would receive funding from the county to operate the RiverPark. The county would still be responsible for some expenses, like utilities.
