BAY ST. LOUIS — The Hancock County city that was named one of the best 100 small cities in the U.S. for art is making a special effort during the year of the city’s tercentennial — the older word for tricentennial — to improve the appearance of the city through property cleanups and litter prevention programs.
“Every event held in our city during our tercentennial year will strive to be litter-free,” said Mayor Eddie Favre. “This positive action honors our past and expresses our appreciation for our wonderful natural environment. This action prepares us to enter the new millennium with respect for our environment and our citizens.”
City officials and volunteers will be meeting with Barbara Dorr, executive director of Keep Mississippi Beautiful, to come up with ways to improve the appearance of a city well known for fine dining as well as an abundance of art and antique stores.
