Council replay: Blessing, splashpads, signs and more

It was a light agenda – a handful of measures, actually – Tuesday evening, but the Biloxi City Council meeting had it all: a coronavirus update from Mayor Andrew “FoFo” Gilich, comments and observations from members of the City Council, and an appearance by a sign-carrying group.

The 23-minute replay of the meeting, now on the city’s YouTube channel, also included an update on this weekend’s Blessing of the Fleet, the status of the city’s splashpads and ball leagues, and an invocation by Pentecostals of the Gulf Coast Pastor Chadwick Craft, whose congregation brought food — and signs.
