SOUTHAVEN, Miss. (AP) - Southaven has scaled back the rental for city-owned facilities.

The city raised the rent after a shooting in July 2013 at the city’s Tennis Center.

Mayor Darren Musselwhite tells The Commercial Appeal (https://bit.ly/1sL6xNO ) that officials decided they overreacted. He says they didn’t want to make the facilities too expensive for people to use.

The Tennis Center rent is back from $1,000 to $750 - the rate before the shooting.

At The Snowden House - a popular site for wedding receptions - rent will drop from $1,750 to $1,250. That’s $150 less than it was before the shooting.

Rental of the auditorium at the city’s Performing Arts Center falls from $1,000 to $750, or $250 more than before the shooting.
