Harrison County supervisors approve plan to finance Buc-ee’s roadwork

Looks like the Buc-ee’s everyone’s been talking about coming to Harrison County is moving forward.

Harrison County Supervisors today took steps to begin work on the project, which is slated to go up at Menge Avenue and I-10.

Supervisors approved the economic development act agreement which authorizes $10 million in tax increment financing for work at the Menge Avenue site.

They also approved issuing $15 million in bonds to rework the I-10 exchange at Menge Avenue. The company awarded that contract will be working under the supervision of MDOT and the county since it will be on a U.S. interstate.

The Harrison County Water and Sewer District plans to approve the same act at its next meeting.

The Mississippi Development Authority and the State Attorney General’s Office also have to approve the plan.
