The Calloway County Judge Executive says it’s unlikely the Fiscal Court will endorse a local park tax that the Murray City Council unanimously supported last week.

Larry Elkins says the tax would give area parks 5 cents on every $100 of assessed property. That would total around $1.2 million dollars each year, which is 800,000 dollars more than the parks’ current annual budget.
