Levee board proposes tax hike

The Board of the Mississippi Levee Commissioners has proposed a property tax increase to cover expenses from last spring’s flood.

Peter Nimrod, chief engineer for the levee board, tells the Delta Democrat Times that the increase is small. He says the tax on a $50,000 home would increase from $13.20 a year to $14.50 annually.

“It’s not a whole lot, but it’s going to be enough for us to get our job done,” Nimrod said.
