The Clarion-Ledger, 5/2/8

In February, Jackson Mayor Frank Melton told The Clarion-Ledger that he’d pay his past-due property taxes in March.

In March, he said he’d pay them in April.

And now, in May, Melton still has not paid the taxes on his home in northeast Jackson. He and his wife, Ellen, owe Hinds County $9,474.58 for the home at 2 Carter’s Grove.

Property taxes were due to the tax collector’s office by Feb. 1. The home’s value is $352,820, according to the county.
