BP Funds to go Toward Keesler Main Gate

Today, Governor Phil Bryant urged the state Legislature to commit $15 million of the BP funds to Keesler Air Force Base for a new gate on Division Street.
Moving the main gate at Keesler Air Force Base will cost $37 million but the City of Biloxi says it is a priority. Military officials say the current gate does not meet Department of Defense security standards.
Biloxi Mayor Andrew ‘FoFo’ Gilich said, “The state’s $15 million moves us significantly closer to accomplishing our goal of establishing a secure and qualified entry point to Keesler.”
