Sparse Turnout for Clarksdale Public Hearing

CLARKSDALE, MS (Ben Caxton) — Only a handful of Clarksdale residents attended last night’s public hearing on the upcoming August 6th referendum for an infrastructure bond. Nevertheless, Mayor Chuck Espy called for one more public hearing on July 8th to make sure that citizens can ask questions and bring additional flooding areas to the city’s attention. That hearing followed the regular city board meeting, during which the city recognized Cindy Doss in the clerk’s office and Descoreno Tyler in public works as the May and June employees of the month. Business owner Hartley Kittle spoke at length about trash and unsightly businesses along the city’s entry corridors; later in the meeting, Mayor Espy noted that landscaping work on three intersections along State Street was ready to begin. In executive session, the mayor and commissioners accepted the resignation of a truck driver in the public works department and voted to advertise for applications to fill the position.
