The Board of Levee Commissioners for the Yazoo-Mississippi Delta Levee District (the “Levee Board”) will hold a public hearing on its proposed budget and proposed tax levies for fiscal year 2020-2021 on August 13, 2020 at 1:00 o’clock P.M., at 140 Delta Avenue, Clarksdale, Mississippi 38614.
The Yazoo-Mississippi Delta Levee District is now operating with a projected total budget revenue of $ 3,817,631.00 (58.04 percent) or $ 2,215,780.00 of such revenue is obtained through ad valorem taxes. For the next fiscal year the proposed budget has total projected revenue of $ 3,824,029.00. Of that amount (57.94 percent) or $ 2,215,780.00 is proposed to be financed through a total ad valorem tax levy.
The decision by the Levee Board to not increase the ad valorem tax millage rate for fiscal year 2020-21 above the current fiscal year's ad valorem tax millage rate means you will not pay more in ad valorem taxes assessed by the Levee Board on your home, automobile tag, utilities, business fixtures and equipment and rental real property, unless the assessed value of your property has increased for fiscal year 2020-21.
Any citizen of the Yazoo-Mississippi Delta Levee District is invited to attend this public hearing on the proposed budget and tax levies for fiscal year 2020-21 and will be allowed to speak for a reasonable amount of time and offer tangible evidence before any vote is taken. However, because of the COVID pandemic, all persons attending the meeting will be required to wear a facial mask or suitable covering and comply with any restrictions and conditions imposed to protect the health and safety of persons in attendance.
