Just 11 months after campaigning on the platform of bringing back new hope for fair election, District 1 Election Commissioner Tyler Wood has resigned his post. The resignation was accepted during Monday’s meeting of the Forrest County Board of Supervisors.
Forrest County taxpayers will not bear the brunt of a tax levy for the upcoming fiscal year as no millage increase was sought. The budget stands at $78.675 million, which consists of $55.498 million in total revenue and a beginning cash balance of $23.177 million.
A public hearing has been set for 10 a.m. Aug. 21 for the Forrest County Board of Supervisors to hear comments from the public on the supervisors obtaining approximately $4 million in TIF (tax increment financing bonds). The hearing received a unanimous vote from the board during its regular first Monday meeting.
