Waveland Alderman Jeremy Burke reports on the new Waveland Lighthouse, the Hope Haven Christmas Toy Drive and the city elections.
It’s hard to believe that it is already time to say Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and Happy New Year. What a great year we have had here in Waveland. This past year, our community has drawn together even closer and we have accomplished more than ever before.
As we celebrate this holiday season, let us use this time to reflect and count our blessings. The greatest gift we could exchange this season is to serve one another. May I ask you all to remember your neighbors at this time of year, especially the elderly and those who live alone.
On behalf of my family, as well as the Waveland Board of Aldermen and Mayor, and all of our dedicated Waveland employees, we wish your family all the love and blessings this holiday season can offer.
We look forward with anticipation to another great year in 2019.

The current administration has been able to partner with the Board of Supervisors to aggressively find the funding to make the project a reality. The lighthouse was built using Gulf of Mexico Energy Security Act funds, Tideland Trust funds, and seawall tax funds. The contractor is expected to turn over the project to Waveland by Christmas.
The Waveland Lighthouse & Public Pavilion will further enhance the use of the one of the most beautiful beaches on the Mississippi Gulf Coast. Several people have expressed interest to me in hosting recreation events and festivals because of the easily available lighting, parking, power and, most importantly, a restroom facility.
