PURVIS, Miss. (AP) - The Emergency Management Agency/911 Dispatch Center won’t be the only thing going up in Lamar County during the 2015 fiscal year.

The county’s expense sheet also is expected to rise during the upcoming fiscal year that will begin Oct. 1, and more than half that hike will be related to the construction and outfitting the new dispatch annex.

Toss in a new senior center in Sumrall, new ball fields in Purvis, a new Parks and Recreation Department and a 3 percent employee raise, and the county’s 2015 expense budget is expected to come in around $38.1 million.

County Administrator Chuck Bennett tells The Hattiesburg American (https://hatne.ws/1t2gGER) some residents may see a higher bill if their property or other ad valorem assets were in the reassessment rotation this year.
