2011 Floods Still Impacting Concordia Parish
VIDALIA, La. (AP) — The Concordia Economic and Industrial Development District is still feeling the effects of last year's Mississippi River flood.
The Natchez Democrat reports that the district board figures for the year that ended June 13 show revenues from hotel taxes totaled $71,000 — a decrease from the $90,000 it collected the previous fiscal year.
Director Heather Malone said the lowest numbers collected from the occupancy revenue taxes were in the months of April, May, June and July — the months that the Vidalia Riverfront was under water and dealing with cleanup after the flood.
