Destination Waveland Canceled
In mid-August, Mayor Mike Smith announced that the 2021 Destination Waveland scheduled for Labor Day week had been canceled due to the recent dramatic uptick in COVID-19 cases. Although Destination Waveland is an outdoor event, the concern was that thousands of people would be concentrated in one area. Mayor Mike Smith attends regular conference calls with Mississippi State Department of Health official Dr. Dobbs. The decision to cancel the event wasn’t made without conferencing with health professionals.

If you would like to speak during public comments for three minutes or less during the Waveland Board of Mayor and Alderman meeting, all you need to do is indicate in the chatbox on GoToMeeting, ask to speak when you sign in before the meeting, or call Waveland City Hall before 4:30 PM on the meeting day and ask to be added public comments.
As always, the best way to communicate with the Mayor or Aldermen is to send them an email or call them before the meeting. An email or phone call will enable a more open line of communication.
These safety precautions are being implemented to keep Waveland residents, visitors, and employees safe from COVID-19.
In August, the City of Waveland awarded Southern Site Utilities a contract to replace a significant drainage culvert under Nicholson Avenue just north of the CSX rail tracks. This culvert drain is an intricate part of the drainage system for the Bunny Park Subdivision on the east side of Nicholson Avenue in Waveland.
