PASCAGOULA — Jackson County Port Authority commissioners have set a of $12.9 million budget for the Port of Pascagoula for the coming year.
Port Director Mark McAndrews tells The Mississippi Press that the spending plan, adopted this week, is conservative. He says port revenues are relatively flat.
Fiscal 2015 begins Oct. 1 for local governments.
McAndrews says commissioners have created a separate budget of $49.6 million for a rail/wood pellet intermodal improvement project, because the project has several different funding sources.
