City Council meets Tuesday evening

The Biloxi City Council conducts its first-of-the-month night meeting on Tuesday at 6, with an agenda of more than two dozen measures.

The meeting, which will be limited to elected leaders and staff as needed, will be streamed live on the city’s website. At the outset of the gathering, Mayor Andrew “FoFo” Gilich will update councilmembers on the city’s ongoing efforts to help control the spread of the coronavirus.

Several agenda items deal with the COVID-19 state-of-emergency, but others deal with ongoing city issues and projects: public improvement projects, infrastructure, and routine purchases of equipment and supplies.
