City Desk        City Meetings        Crime Mapping


(06/26/16) Mayor Gilich to nominate Tisdale as CAO; Nichols, current CAO accepts position with Biloxi Public Schools.  Read the city’s press release.

(06/11/16)  See the city’s proposed Leisure and Recreation Districts, i.e., the “Go Cup” district(s).  Since it’s the First Reading, a procedural requirement, the Council will not vote on the issue until the Second Reading, likely to occur at the Council meeting of June 28.  If you wish to comment on the proposed district(s), you may do so under the Citizen Comments part of the agenda at this Council meeting or the next; comments are limited to 3 minutes.

(06/09/16)  Your City Council approved last month a contract with Sweep Masters, a Theodore, Ala.-based company that uses vehicular sweepers to clean parking lots across the Gulf Coast. The cost to Biloxi: $55 per curb mile or $150 an hour.  Among the roadways scheduled for monthly sweeping: Caillavet Street, Howard Avenue, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard, White Avenue, Pass Road, Popp’s Ferry Road (including the bridge), Cedar Lake Road to I-10, Brodie Road (Cedar Lake to Destiny Plantation), Richard Drive, Jam Lane, Debuys Road (U.S. 90 to Pass Road), Eisenhower Drive, Rodenberg Avenue and Veterans Avenue.  Some streets, such as Pass Road and Popp’s Ferry Road, are scheduled to be swept twice a month.  Under the plan, major thoroughfares typically will be swept at night, usually from 7 p.m. through the early morning hours, and any neighborhood streets will be swept during the day.

(06/02/16)  Work completed last week at the south end of Churchill Avenue was to run a replacement water line to the trailer park on Pass Road, just west of the Donal Snyder Recreation Center.  The affected part of Churchill will be resurfaced in the next week or two.  In the meantime, slow down when entering River Place from that entrance to reduce the likelihood of damaging the front end of your vehicle.

(05/22/16)  Switzer Drive sidewalk project well underway… will run from Eisenhower Drive west to DeBuys Road when completed in the next several weeks.
