        Balmoral Ave Update                          11/25/14

About a dozen Balmoral Avenue residents attended the pre-construction meeting.  The $1.8 Million project will begin December 1.  The contract calls for completion by December 1, 2015.  Water, sewage and drainage lines will be replaced from the north end of Balmoral south to the 5-way stop, then south on Edgewater Drive to Highway 90.

Road/Drainage Improvements    11/19/14    About a year ago, the Council approved $14 Million in bonds to improve roads and drainage throughout the city.   I asked for the list of roads and drainage projects that would be addressed.  Council members were asked for their input, as was the Public Works department.  Click the button below to see the projects, listed by ward.

       Pay Your Water Bill Online           11/25/14

A reminder that the City of Biloxi continues to offer its water customers the option of paying their monthly water bill with a credit card or e-check, either in the water department office or through the city’s web site. The vendor providing the secure service – X-press-pay.com — charges a convenience fee of 2.95 percent plus 63 cents for credit cards – about $2.78 on a $72 water bill — or a flat $2.50 for e-checks.  See the new link in the column to the right > > > > > >

        Short Term Rentals                       11/27/14
A Public Hearing date concerning Short Term Rentals (less than 30 days) has not yet been determined.  The Planning Commission or City Council  will conduct the hearing so that the public  and policy makers have a better understanding of the impact on residential housing and neighborhoods.  I'll post more information as it becomes available.
