COMMUNITY RECOVERY OPEN HOUSES-Friday August 15

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Input, Innovation, and Ideas Welcomed at Two Upcoming
COMMUNITY RECOVERY OPEN HOUSES
Hosted by the Strategic Community Recovery Planning Team

A group of citizens, local government representatives, and business owners have joined together to form the Louisville/Winston County Strategic Community Recovery Planning Team (SCRPT) for the purpose of creating a strategy for community recovery in the aftermath of the tornadoes that struck in late April of this year. A meeting in the Winston County Courthouse on Tuesday night brought together over forty of these individuals who created three Recovery Committees; Business/Economic Development Committee, Community & Medical Services Committee, and Housing Recovery Committee.

On Thursday August 14 from 8:00 AM until 10:00 AM and then from 4:00 PM until 6:00 PM, the (SCRPT) will host an Open House in the Winston Court House Annex, located at 115 South Court Street, Louisville. The public is invited to learn about the strategic recovery planning process and share their ideas and input on ways they would like to see the community of Louisville rebuild and recovery from the tornado damage.

If you would like more information on the Open House please contact City Hall at 662-773-9201


PUBLIC HEARING ON THE COUNTY BUDGET AND AD VALOREM TAX LEVY FOR FISCAL YEAR 2014-2015

The Board of Supervisors of Winston County will hold a public hearing for fiscal year 2014-2015 on September 2, 2014, at 10:30 am in the Boardroom of the Winston County Courthouse at Louisville, Mississippi. At this meeting a proposed 2014-2015 budget will be considered.

Winston County is now operating with projected total budget revenue of $10,966,693.00. 34.4%, or $3,722,542.00, of such revenue is obtained through Ad Valorem taxes. For the next fiscal year, the proposed budget has a total projected revenue of $11,677,507.00. Of that amount, 30.4 %, or $3,554,418.00 is proposed to be financed through Ad Valorem tax levy.

There will be no increase in millage. This means that you will pay the same ad valorem taxes on your home, car tag, utilities, business fixtures and equipment, and rental property unless your valuation has changed.

Any citizens of Winston County are invited to attend this public hearing on the proposed Ad Valorem tax revenue in the budget and will be allowed to speak for a reasonable amount of time and offer tangible evidence before any vote is taken.
