PHILADELPHIA — The Mississippi Band of Choctaw Indians is scheduled to break ground tomorrow for a vehicle maintenance facility to serve the East Mississippi area.
Tribal Chief Phyliss J. Anderson and Central District Transportation Commissioner Dick Hall are scheduled to speak at the event.
Officials say once complete, the Choctaw Transit Authority could provide services for its transit vehicles, other Tribal program vehicles (including school buses and emergency vehicles) and transit vehicles that belong to other public entities.
The 13,960-square-foot facility is scheduled for completion September of 2013.
