Celebrating 40 years with the Town of Tunica
Town will regulate low speed vehicles
A July 31 hearing on the town’s proposed low speed vehicle ordinance produced only positive comments last week, prompting town aldermen to pass the new law regulating the vehicles this week.
“I think it’s a great idea,” Ched Walton said to open the discussion last Thursday.
“We can use this as a positive for our community – and we could use something positive,” commented resident Nolen Canon.
“I’m for it,” Buddy Allen said.

An alarm that went off at one local business about 3 a.m. Sunday, August 3, ultimately helped to solve a burglary at another store.
Officers apprehended Theodore Lambert of Tunica within an hour of the attempted break in at Watson’s on Highway 61 North, after tentatively identifying the man from surveillance footage. Lambert was found in possession of a large number of rings and other pieces of jewelry.
