Podcast: A double feature of huge issues

Mayors Andrew “FoFo” Gilich of Biloxi and Billy Hewes of Gulfport have been working with their colleagues and other elected leaders from across the Coast to build consensus for a plan that would see real, measurable economic benefits from the $750 million in BP economic damages money.

And, remember, you heard it here: June 2018 is the expected completion date for the infrastructure work in east Biloxi north of the CSX railway. That’s the word from Walt Rode, who was appointed by Mayor Andrew “FoFo” Gilich 14 months ago to oversee the infrastructure work. Rode also sets timetables for upcoming paving work and when you can expect to see the city move forward on work south of the railway.

It’s a 25-minute program and was taped this morning at Biloxi City Hall.
