Drainage Contracts Awarded
Mayor Shelton is pleased to announce that the two contracts for cleaning the canals and off road ditches are being awarded to Looks Great Services from Columbia, MS. After an extensive bid process and followup with references, the award is being made so Central's drainage system and its performance can be improved. The total amount of funds allocated for this project is $4 million. The project includes the cleaning of some of the worst areas of obstructions created by the Flood of 2016. The City Administration is committed to improving Central's drainage system, and will continue to work on the comprehensive plan as the recently award contracts move forward. In fact, CSRS is currently working on mapping grids and preliminary work needed for the long term plan.
