Clarksdale Commissioners Hear State Of the City

CLARKSDALE, MS (Paul Wilson, WROX Radio) — After one year on the job, Clarksdale Police Chief Sandra Williams gave an update to the mayor and city commissioners yesterday. She noted that even though her department is budgeted for 38 officers and there are currently only 33 on staff, there are at least five officers on the streets at all times. Of the city’s 10 homicides this year, 7 have been solved. Two are still being actively investigated and one is on hold awaiting a report from the state crime lab. Also at yesterday’s meeting, fire chief Rocky Nabors reported the cause of the fire that destroyed the Riverside Recreation Center was likely electrical. Developer Dwan Brown said that constructions plans for the WingStop which will occupy Clarksdale’s historic Greyhound Depot are being reviewed by the state department of archives and history. He anticipates the restaurant will open in late March, adding 20 jobs and $400,000 in annual payroll to the city’s economy.
