New developments for Biloxi


The end of the fiscal year for the City of Biloxi is months away and the mayor and city council are already talking about projects for next year. Today, the city council voted to get the ball rolling on a new program called ‘Coding Academy.’

The program would accept around 20 students from the Biloxi area to attend the 11 month program. Companies on the Coast that are in need of coders would be involved which would grant jobs to those attending the academy. Biloxi Mayor Andrew ‘FoFo’ Gilich said, “It gives us the ability to establish a system if you will. You go through this intense program for about 11 months, graduate and do those things then you have a job ready to go, a high paying job with a future.”

The council also voted to looking into starting an incentive program to increase housing in the downtown and east Biloxi areas. This is all connected to the Downtown Revitalization Project along with the East Biloxi Infrastructure Project.

During his time at OU he interned as a meteorologist at KOCO in Oklahoma City where he experienced all types of weather ranging from tornadoes, flooding and winter storms. Payton received his Bachelor of Science in Geography and a Minor in Meteorology. Payton's interest in weather began at the very young age of six after a local broadcast meteorologist talked to his class about preparing for severe weather. That along with growing up in the middle of Tornado Alley, Payton has been hooked to the weather ever since. He is excited to move to the Gulf Coast and start a new adventure away from the plains. He loves venturing around the area finding new coffee shops, local places to eat, and he looks forward to being involved in the communities on the Mississippi coast.
