Mayor George FlaggsI have attached a summary of Senate Bill 2926 regarding a recreation and tourism tax for the City of Vicksburg to be signed by Governor Phil Bryant. In this attachment, you will find a breakdown of a 1 1/2% sales tax on hotels and restaurants that will help fund a proposed sports complex for our community.

Also, I have included a summary of proposed water and sewer rate increases for our city that have been recommended by our Utility Rate Increase Committee. These increases are due in part to an EPA Consent Decree that many municipalities are facing today and also rising operating costs for our water and sewer usage.
