Waveland is considering issuing $2 million in bonds to make upgrades and needed repairs to roads. The mayor and Board of Alderman are still in the discussion phase, but I believe a significant amount of money will be invested in roads this year.
Waveland needs an infusion of money for needed re-paving and overlay of city streets. Potholes are being patched regularly, but many Waveland streets require permanent repair. If the bond is approved, Waveland will likely repair selected roads all at one time in order to get a discount in pricing from potential contractors.
What's Up, Waveland?

Waveland Mayor Mike Smith and I recently went to Jackson, Mississippi, to meet with several state lawmakers and the Mississippi Development Authority. Many positive discussions were had about beach improvements projects, GOMESA funding, and Restore Act money from the BP oil spill. Because of COVID-19 restrictions, the halls of the Mississippi State Capitol were relatively empty, allowing us to have more face time with lawmakers.
