Waveland Goes to Jackson
Waveland Mayor Mike Smith, Alderman Bobby Richardson and I recently attended the Mississippi Municipal League’s 2016 Mid-Winter Legislative Conference in Jackson, Mississippi.
Along with approximately 600 municipal leaders from all over Mississippi, we participated in discussions of current legislative issues and their impact on local governments, discussed economic development strategies, and learned about current programs from several grant and loan-issuing agencies. We also networked with legislators at the capitol and provided them important feedback on issues that are critical to Waveland.

Waveland Civic Center
Hancock County Community Education currently hosts weekly seat-weaving and yoga classes in the building. Exhibits are being gathered for the museum so the building can be opened to visitors to enjoy the history of Waveland. I foresee this building being widely used by the whole community for a number of different events and activities.
The next step is to address the building’s half-complete kitchen. The city has $18,000 of restricted funds to be used only for completion of the kitchen, and plans for this completion will be discussed in the coming months.
