D’iberville State of the City meeting

Of all the cities on the Gulf Coast, D’iberville has seen some of the most rapid growth.
City Officials gave the state of the city address this morning, and according to officials, things are looking up.
Since 2005, D’iberville’s sales tax revenue has increased by 61.7 percent, where nearby Biloxi actually lost over four percent. This growth is good for business but can make policing difficult.
“Certainly, it adds individuals to come into our city, which we’re happy about that, but we need to be diligent in our effort to protect our citizens and give them a safe environment to shop and live,” said Chief of Police Wayne Payne.
Part of the city’s plan is to build a newer, more centrally located police station near the fire station on Lamey Bridge Road, creating a ten acre public safety complex. As the city continues to grow, it continues to amaze those who had a hand in its development.
Bobby Eluterius expects tourism to become a main industry for D’Iberville in the coming years. Expect to see indoor skating and cart racing, professional mini golf, a five million dollar sports complex and $40,000 worth of beautification across the city.
