Alcorn County’s second district is doing something new – it’s saving money.

Second year Supervisor James Voyles has made changes in his district that have resulted in big savings in the road maintenance department. By utilizing district crew members and purchasing used equipment, Voyles has trimmed a costly job into a cost effective one.
