Jackson Mayor Frank Melton, who is currently on trial for alleged civil rights violations, has not paid his 2008 property taxes, which were due 10 days ago.

The mayor owes $13,098.43 on his property at 2 Carter’s Grove and $1,340 on several other parcels he owns, according to the Hinds County Tax Collector’s Web site.

Property owners have until the last week of August to pay their taxes and all late fees and penalties. After that, properties go to the county tax sale.
