Pascagoula city officials consider raising taxes

In two weeks, Pascagoula city leaders will convene to discuss a plan of attack dealing with the city’s recently discovered budget shortfall.

A July audit revealed a $14 million deficit to the city’s budget. Pascagoula citizens are concerned their property and vehicle taxes will increase, among others, which is something city officials are currently considering, but an official plan is yet to be released.

The public is welcome to attend that meeting set for September 6th at 6 p.m. at City Hall.
