(09/24/17)  The Snyder Center pool hours have changed for Thursdays to 6:00-8:00 am due to a shortage of lifeguards.  Pool hours the rest of the week remain the same.  If you, or someone you know, is interested in obtaining lifeguard certification, please contact Mr. Jamie Lee, Biloxi Natatorium, 228.435.6205 or jlee@biloxi.ms.us… There is a charge of $175 and the individual must be at least 15 years old.

(09/24/17)  The current contractor for garbage/trash/recycling, Waste Pro, is limping across the finish line as their contract ends September 30, this week.  In my neighborhood, the garbage has been picked up weekly, on Friday (the scheduled day) or Saturday… same with recycling… but trash and yard waste (limbs, bagged leaves, etc.) haven’t been picked up in 2 weeks.  As I drive Ward 5 and other parts of Biloxi, the story is pretty much the same.  Just wanted you to know that I’m aware and continue to push the Harrison County Utility Authority (HCUA), who has contracts with and oversees garbage/trash/recycling to have this stuff picked up.  Those who attended the HCUA community meeting this past Thursday know that HCUA are doing what they can, under the terms of the current contract, to hold Waste Pro accountable.

(09/20/17)  Thursday, September 21, 6:00 pm, Donal Snyder Community Center, Pass Road… Team Waste and Pelican Waste will explain changes in garbage pickup and recycling that begins October 1st.  If you have questions about garbage and trash pickup, this is the meeting to get answers!

(09/15/17)  The city budget for Fiscal Year 2018 will be up for a vote at Tuesday’s Council meeting, 1:30, second floor at City Hall.  See the documents.  Setting the tax levy (millage) for the city and the Biloxi Public School District is also on the agendaThere is no increase in the city tax levy or the school district tax levySee the document.  Citizens have one last opportunity to comment on the budget during the Citizen Comments portion of the agenda.

(09/15/17)  Neighborhood Passes (Coliseum shortcut during Cruisin’ the Coast, first week in October) for Briarfield subdivision can be picked up at Anita Denham’s on Pine Grove Ave… for Grande View Apartments at the manager’s office… for Maison d’Orleans Apartments at the manager’s office.

(09/13/17)  Those Biloxi water customers who would have received their monthly bill on Aug. 30, with a due date of Sept. 15, will be receiving those bills late, with a due date of Sept. 25.  Bank draft customers will be drafted on the 25th, not the 15th.  The late bills, which are going to a third of the city’s water customers, were caused by a staffing change at the company that mails the monthly city water bills.  Biloxi bills its 14,000 customers in three cycles. The staffing changed caused a previous billing cycle to be several days late, which also pushed back the current cycle.  If the next cycle is also late, the due date will be pushed back accordingly.  Said Dianne Merrill of the city water department: “The local company that mails our bills is working to get the billing cycles back on track. We apologize for any inconvenience, and, rest assured, anytime we’re responsible for the bill going out late, the due date is adjusted accordingly.”

(07/24/17)  Who’s responsible for cleaning Highway 90?  Simple question… the answer’s a bit more complex.  Click here to see the diagram
