VICKSBURG, Miss. (AP) - An outage at Grand Gulf Nuclear Station brought thousands of temporary workers to the Vicksburg area and that boosted revenue from the Warren County hospitality tax.
Entergy's Grand Gulf outage for refueling and upgrades began in January and began winding down in June.
The Vicksburg Post reports that hospitality taxes received in June and July exceeded the totals for the same period in 2011 by more than $25,000. Those figures were presented to the Vicksburg Convention and Visitors Bureau board on Thursday.
