Biloxi A to Z: Swetman House, spring break, and more

The City of Biloxi is taking bids from those interested in purchasing the Swetman House and is holding a viewing this weekend, details in today’s A to Z report.

The nearly century-old home located at 1596 Glenn Swetman St., was deeded to the City of Biloxi in the late 1990s by the Swetman family. The city has decided to seek a new owner of the property.            

Those interested may view the home on Saturday between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. Bids will be viewed on May 3 at 10 a.m. at Biloxi City Hall.

Also in today’s report: Mayor Andrew “FoFo” Gilich and city leaders express concerns over the spring break events, a message from Thunderbird 8, weekend weather, Summer Playground registration and other weekend events, and the gentle rhythm of the waves on the seawall.
