Citizens seek EPA review
The Board of Supervisors authorized lot clean-ups and took action on citizen concerns at their March 18 meeting.
County code enforcer Jewelie Brown had previously presented a list of properties in need of attention. County attorney Andy Dulaney said public hearing notices had been mailed to the physical address of the properties, the address on file at the tax assessor’s office or hand delivered by the Tunica County Sheriff’s Department. No one had responded to the notices by Monday, except property owner Eddie Lee Cole, who was present at the hearing.
Dulaney said Cole was in the process of correcting issues on his property and no action was required on his lot.
New eatery offers international cuisine
In recent weeks, Tunica has seen a proliferation of restaurants which specialize in everything from Tex-Mex and authentic Mexican food to pizza.
Now, with the advent of the latest dining establishment to call Tunica home, patrons can satisfy their tastes for a more diverse range of international cuisine.
Watson’s Green Olive Restaurant, which is located adjacent to the renovated Watson’s Cash Store in the old Dorothy Ann Gin office building, opened for business last Saturday. The restaurant features an extensive menu of fare, including Italian and seafood dishes, as well as Middle Eastern-influenced foods.
Ready to ride
Riders christening the new Tunica County bike trail will cruise the 13 mile section from Rivergate Park to Mhoon Landing Park and back to the town of Tunica as part of the trail’s official opening on Saturday, March 23.
Aldermen set April 11 preservation hearing
The Town of Tunica took the next step toward establishment of a local historic district at Tuesday’s Board of Aldermen meeting. The board set an April 11 hearing to consider the boundaries of the district, which were recommended to the board by the town’s Historic Preservation Commission.
“The Commission is eager to move forward,” town planner Bob Barber reported. “Tunica has a great downtown, and these preservation programs, if administered properly, are a great benefit.”
