Moss Point leaders meet to hear from concerned residents

In Moss Point, two city council members join together to hear concerns from their community members.

At the Sue Ellen Recreation Center, Ward 3 Alderman Tim Dubose and Ward 4 Alderwoman Shirley Chambers hosted a community meeting to let the voices of residents be heard.

The community filled the bleachers, speaking one at a time, expressing their concerns of flooding, drainage, erosion, matters of public safety, and more.

Moss Point’s public works directors, deputy chief of police, mayor, and other city leaders acknowledged the public’s concerns and gave answers to their questions.

The public demands transparency and progress reports on work done within the city. Dubose said, “We want our citizens to be engaged in this process and we want them to be apart of the Democratic process and bring this a little bit closer to home and actually letting them be a part of this process.”

Council members also encourage residents to continue to voice their concerns in board meetings every first and third Tuesday of the month at Moss Point City Hall.
