Jackson County appeals high court ruling
Published: April 18,2012
PASCAGOULA — The Jackson County Board of Supervisors has voted to ask the state Supreme Court to reconsider a ruling that a 2007 state law is unconstitutional in requiring the Pascagoula School District to share some tax dollars generated from Chevron facilities with other districts.
The ruling overturned a decision by a Jackson County judge who upheld the law. The Supreme Court had heard the Pascagoula School District’s appeal last June.
County attorney Jimmy Heidelberg says the losing school districts, Moss Point, Ocean Springs and Jackson County are expected to appeal.
Chevron, the area’s largest taxpayer, presented its largest-ever check to the county last year, $35.6 million, with $16.6 million going to the Pascagoula School District.
