Corinth Mayor pushing for vote on taxes for city repairs

CORINTH, Miss.- Corinth Mayor Tommy Irwin is asking legislature to pass a bill for citizens to vote on that would increase taxes for city repairs.

The Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal reports that if the bill is passed citizens would vote in the fall to increase sales tax from 7 percent to 7.25 percent in order to cover cost of repair on three major thoroughfares in the city.

These thoroughfares are used by thousands each day and Irwin says that after all repairs are done the cost could be around $7 million. After the repairs are complete the tax would then return to normal.
