TUPELO, Miss. (WTVA) - Officials with the Community Development Foundation and Lee County hosted the State of the County Thursday.

Board supervisor, Tony Roper, said the state of Lee County has gotten better in the last year with hundreds of new jobs being created.
He said he has plans for the Lee County jail in the near future.
“I don’t care about building those inmates no hotel or anything, but it’s going to have to be something,” he said.
