Lauderdale County, Miss.
The Lauderdale County Board of Supervisors voted Monday on an intent to issue the remaining $10.8 million of a $14 million bond issue. The first part was approved in 2013.
The supervisors voted 3-2 in favor of it. Supervisors Wayman Newell and Kyle Rutledge opposed.
A hearing and an issuance of the bond will occur at a later date.
A motion was also made to put the bond issue on the November ballot, but it failed 3-2.
"I think the citizens of Lauderdale County should have the opportunity to vote on it," said Dist. 2's Newell. "And it wouldn't have cost the taxpayers or the county a dime if we put it on the ballot for November."
"The people of District 3 elected me to make decisions and that's what I'm going to do," said Dist. 3 supervisor, Josh Todd.
The bond issue includes money for recreational complexes to be built in the county, along with courthouse renovations.
