Chamber of Commerce hosts breakfast with Long Beach Mayor
This morning, the Long Beach Chamber of Commerce hosted breakfast with Long Beach Mayor George Bass.
It was an opportunity for the business community to be updated on all that is going on within the friendly city.
Long Beach is a small town, but it is continuing to grow. There are a lot of infrastructure projects the city continues to work on, including the Long Beach Harbor, which was hit hard during Hurricane Zeta.
This morning was also a time to boast. As you recall, the Long Beach School System just received a big recognition being named the number one district in the state. Mayor Bass said, “We have two million dollars that we are able to secure from the state through BP funding, Gulf Coast Restoration Fund, as they like to call it. It’s BP money, not state money. It’s BP money. We were given two million dollars. We will be doing some downtown renovations. We will be doing North Jeff Davis extensions. It will be a one-way street that will take you by the Quarles House.”
The city hopes to incorporate the Quarles Home into the community by making it an event center and office space for the chamber and historical society.
