Business of the Year
I would like to congratulate Chappy and Starr Chapman on Rum Kitchen being elected by the Hancock Chamber membership as Waveland Business of Year.
The addition of Rum Kitchen to the Waveland business community in 2016 has been a blessing and a treat. It is always flattering when a business establishes in Waveland and becomes a part of our community.
What's Up, Waveland?
Waveland Avenue Sidewalks
The proposed project will have 3 miles of 5’ sidewalks, ramps, and necessary drainage along the east and west sides of Waveland Avenue. The project will paid from 80% federal funds and 20% local fund. If the project comes in above budget, Waveland will seek additional funds or will slightly scale back the project until additional funds become available.
The plan as of now is to select a contractor before the end of the year and have construction start soon after. The awarded project will be completed before the end of 2019.
Local engineering company and sponsor of the What’s Up, Waveland column, Chiniche Engineering, designed this project and will be overseeing the construction of the project.
Elwood Bourgeois Park
Waveland had a majority of the materials needed to construct the restroom facility from previous projects and was able to do a lot of the work with city employees. The cost to construct these two projects at Elwood Bourgeois Park is less than $15,000 and will allow Waveland to get rid of the weekly rental of the portable toilets.
