Supervisors petitioning for resort status
CLAY COUNTY — Clay County supervisors have given their endorsement to resort status for the Prairie Wildlife Preserve.
The Mississippi State Tax Commission will have the final say.
Several areas in Mississippi have resort status, including casinos, state parks and the Ross Barnett Reservoir. No package sales are allowed. Resort status only applies to by-the-drink sales of beer, wine and liquor.
Officials with the 500-acre preserve want to serve alcohol in the lodge and dining area.
Officials say alcohol sales will help attract more visitors to the preserve, which is looking to expand its land and outdoor offerings.
Officials say several hundred acres is already devoted to quail hunting, but thousands of acres will be open for bird-watching, hiking, fishing and canoeing.
