The Chamber of Commerce hosted their annual Harrison County State of the County Address Wednesday morning.
The meeting covered the ups and downs that Harrison County has been facing throughout the year.
Covering everything from the county’s budget approval, distribution of taxes collected, flooding and land conservation and how the county responded to COVID-19.
The meeting also provided an update on how the Harrison County Emergency Agency is confident in their system for potential natural disasters.
While the meeting highlighted a lot of good news in Harrison County, the biggest news was the Harrison County fire rating that’s been lowered to a 6. No other county in Mississippi has a solid 6 across the county. Harrison County Fire Chief Pat Sullivan said, “All the fire districts in Harrison County have received a fire rating of six, which is a very good rating. The reduction allows homeowners of Harrison County to receive a reduction in their insurance rate.”
The Mississippi Gulf Coast Chamber of Commerce is hosting another zoom meeting October 13th with Governor Tate Reeves as their guest speaker.
