Waveland Police Station
I'm pleased to report that the Waveland Police Department has moved out of the double wide trailer on Coleman Avenue into their permanent home on McLaurin Street.
The police station, which has been eight years in the making (including a five year hiatus), is finally completed. The new Waveland Police Station will also be the new location of Waveland court. The total cost of the police station was just over $6 million, which included a $2 million bond that had to be obtained to correct deficiencies.
What's Up, Waveland
There will be a ribbon cutting for the Johnny Longo/Donald Dorn Public Safety Facility on Monday, August 29, at 11 a.m.
Waveland broke ground at a ceremony in June. Preliminary site work has started and the construction of the splash pad will begin in a few weeks and will be done by community volunteers.
The splash pad will be a wonderful addition for the children Waveland.
Nicholson Avenue Bulkhead
This event was hosted by Destination Waveland. Danny Lee designed the bulkhead mural, and Lowes provided supplies for the project. Special thanks to Charles Cornelius, Tommy Bentley, Cynthia Mahner and all the other Wavelandinians who helped with this project.
Library Branch Manager
If you have been to the Waveland Public Library in recent weeks, you have probably noticed that Mrs. Nancy Pepperman hasn't been there. Well, the reason that Mrs. Nancy Pepperman hasn't been at the library is because she retired, and I would like to thank her for her dedication to the citizens she has served in her time as branch manager.
Nancy's replacement as the Waveland Library manager is Angela Christoffer. Angela has been with the Hancock County Library System for 8 years. She served as Waveland's Deputy Director before assuming the role of Waveland branch manager on May 31st. I know that Angela will serve the Waveland community well.
