The president of the Harrison County Board of Supervisors wants to set the record straight.
Connie Rockco says safeguards were put in place two years ago to protect the county if a manufacturer like Oreck leaves town. However, those protections didn't exist when Oreck received a 10 year tax exemption to move to Mississippi.
"With the clawback, you have to certify that you live up to the obligations. And if you don't live up to the obligations, then you will actually lose your tax exemption," Rockco said.
