Mayor Gilich is Launching a Campaign to Clean up Biloxi

Biloxi is one of the oldest communities in the county, and Biloxi’s new mayor wants to clean up the city’s image.
News 25’s Kendra Turley hit the sites and streets of Biloxi and gives us a look at a new campaign that’s been launched, a campaign aimed at keeping the city litter free.
Bill Myers likes Biloxi. “We come out here once or twice a year for a weeks’ vacation,” said Myers. Bill’s from Florida, but has visited Biloxi for decades, this time his granddaughter Aubrey was in tow. She enjoyed the sights but Bill was disappointed by the trash people had left behind at the city’s popular destinations. “It’s disgusting, how can people do that? Especially to a beautiful area like this.”
Biloxi Mayor Andrew ‘FoFo’ Gilich has been in office less than a year, but he’s already launched a campaign to clean up the city. Vincent Creel, Biloxi public affairs manager, said, “When people come to Biloxi, or frankly, anywhere on the Gulf Coast, they want to see a clean and inviting city. Biloxi is a 315 year old brand. We have an obligation and a responsibility to protect that brand.”
It all starts in City Hall. The mayor has asked city department heads to step and set an example for the rest of the community. Creel tells News 25 that Mayor Gilich is in the works with the Parks and Recreation Department and the Public Works Department to help beautify Biloxi, so that visitors have beautiful memories to share when they get back home.
