WROX Radio, Clarksdale, Mississippi.From WROX:

At yesterday’s meeting of the Clarksdale city board fire chief Rocky Nabors, the mayor and commissioners again recognized assistant chief Chris Chicorelli who is retiring after 40 years of service.  The board also took no action on the planning commission’s recommendation to grant a conditional use permit to the Memory Lane Banquet Hall on MLK; commissioner Ed Seals said he spoke with many of the neighbors and all but one were strongly against reopening the facility.

Most of the meeting was consumed with discussion about the proposed bond issue to pay for flooding abatements, street and bridge rehabilitations.  The city’s latest cost estimate for flood work in the Pearson and Sasse Street neighborhoods, replace the Second Street Bridge and other projects is $8.5 million; city voters will be asked to prioritize the projects and approve a 5 mil tax increase in August.
