Supervisors to hear city’s complaint over tax assessments

BILOXI — The Harrison County Board of Supervisors will hold a hearing next week on Biloxi’s complaints about tax assessments in the city.

Officials say the city has lost millions since Hurricane Katrina because the Harrison County tax assessor has assessed some properties at $0 and other properties below where they should be.

The Casino Magic hotel tower that was damaged by Katrina, Southern Trucking’s concrete plant, Gulf Coast Mental Health Center and the Biloxi Yacht Club are among those that were assessed at zero value and will be appealed.

Jerry Creel, the city’s community development director, told The Sun Herald they had identified 18 properties on which the assessor reduced the value of the building to zero.

The appeal will be heard Aug. 27 at the Gulfport courthouse.
