Hitt Raises Issue of Travel Budget

A Lauderdale County supervisor has asked that the budget be re-examined to locate travel funds that were approved last year.

District three's Craig Hitt said Monday that money was allocated for the Mississippi Association of Supervisors Convention in June at Tunica.

But Hitt said he has been told there is no funding for the trip.

Hitt said he believes he found a discrepancy and asked the county administrator to check it out.

"Some of us have worked to get the fall workshop for the Mississippi Association of Supervisors to be located here in Lauderdale County," said Hitt. "And very excited about the fact that some probably 200 supervisors across the state and their spouses and family members will come to our community for three days and quite frankly, leave some of their money behind."

Hitt said some supervisors have criticized trips being taken, but he says they are valuable in promoting Lauderdale County.
