Feds return $1.7 million to Waveland taxpayers
On July 3, 2019 FEMA sent a letter to the Mississippi Emergency Management Agency (MEMA). MEMA requested the reinstatement of over $1.4 Million Dollars to the city of Waveland in references to PW's 4916 and 4917, for the Sanitary Sewer South (bladder tanks) project. Waveland had been fighting with FEMA to years in order for FEMA to forgive deobligated funds for Sewer South project for years. The fight is now concluded in favor of the Waveland taxpayers.
Once reinstatement is complete, it will also clear an additional $300,000 of held reimbursements that are currently being retained by the Federal Government. This return will total more than $1.7 million back to the coffers of the City of Waveland. The additional funds will put Waveland on solid financial ground which will help Waveland keep taxes low.
What's Up, Waveland?

Waveland owes a great deal of gratitude to Senator Cindy Hyde Smith, Senator Roger Wicker and Congressman Steven Palazzo for this endeavor. Without their leadership and perseverance Waveland would still be at a standstill.
Business of the Year
I would like to congratulate Pearl River Community College Hancock Center for being elected by the Hancock Chamber membership as the Waveland Business of the Year.
Pearl River Community College Hancock Center provides local students with an opportunity to receive a quality education right here in Waveland. Pearl River Community College Hancock Center opened right before Katrina then reopened shortly after Katrina in a trailer in order to continue the mission of educating Hancock County students.
What a blessing Waveland has that students can receive a top-notch education with just a short drive, bike ride or even walk to the Pearl River Community College Hancock Center. Congratulations to Pearl River Community College Hancock Center.
