No tax increase in Southaven

SOUTHAVEN — There will be no tax increase in Southaven, that city’s administrator and chief financial officer said Friday, blunting a growing firestorm of controversy that had erupted since city leaders first floated the idea of up to a four-mill increase.

However, city residents’ garbage rates will rise $12 to offset dedicated millage that is being moved to cover general fund expenses.
