Waveland Alderman Jeremy Burke reports on the St. Paddy's Day parade, the new amendment to the city charter and the ground-breaking for the lighthouse!
The parade will start on Waveland Avenue, travel down Central Avenue, turn right onto Coleman Avenue, right on Beach Boulevard and then disband at Waveland Avenue. Waveland Police Department decided this route is logistically the best route for the parade. Hope to see everyone lined up on the route ready to catch beads, cups, and, of course, cabbage!
Waveland Charter Change
The Waveland Board of Aldermen voted and approved in February to amend the Waveland charter. The major change to the charter is moving the date the newly elected mayor and alderman assume office. The Board of Aldermen voted unanimously to move the date of being sworn into office from the day after the general election to the first regular scheduled meeting in January. This will allow for a one-month transition period for the newly elected mayor and aldermen.
The proposed amendment must be sent to the Mississippi Secretary of State for his approval before the change can become official.
Waveland Lighthouse Groundbreaking
If you have driven down Beach Boulevard lately, you may have noticed the fencing around the parking lot at the foot of Coleman Avenue. That means construction is about to start on the much anticipated Waveland Lighthouse.
The city of Waveland would like to invite you to the ribbon cutting for the Waveland Lighthouse on Friday, March 9th, 10:00 AM at the Waveland Lighthouse site with a reception to follow at the Waveland Business Center. For more details, please call Waveland City Hall at (228) 467-4134.
