Mapping project could save counties money
BIDS ARE DUE today on an aerial photography project that will likely save Madison County money.
Madison, Hinds, Rankin and 11 other counties are planning to go in together on the flyover photography, which they’ll use to update their aerial maps, with funding help from a few federal and state agencies.
The Mississippi Department of Revenue requires counties the size of Madison to update their aerial photography every 10 years for tax mapping purposes. Aerial maps help with property reappraisals and are also used in Madison County’s E-911 office.
