Also during the meeting, the board approved a request to continue an interlocal agreement between the county’s Tax Assessor Gary Beech’s office and the City of Picayune whereby the county Tax Assessor’s office will continue to collect ad valorem taxes for the City of Picayune and the county will collect a commission of 5 percent.


The board also approved the agreement with Poplarville and in that agreement, the Tax Assessor's office will withhold two percent of the gross amount collected for services delivered in the collection of ad valorem and personal property assessments.
