Coast county to borrow money to fund multiple projects
Published: February 22,2012
JACKSON COUNTY — Jackson County supervisors have voted to borrow $2.5 million in a five-year note to complete multiple projects.
The Mississippi Press reports about $1.2 million will go toward site work on the new Adult Detention Facility and $430,000 will fund a Highway Patrol building on Mississippi 57.
Another $430,000 will go to improvements at the overcrowded West Jackson County Court Complex, while $278,000 will go to purchase golf carts.
Any leftover money will go toward a bridge project near the Pascagoula River Audubon Center.
Supervisors decided against including $100,000 for improvements at the animal shelter in the borrowing. Instead, Supervisor John McKay said, the county will fund projects in the new fiscal year’s budget.
The county’s fiscal year runs Oct.1 to Sept. 30.
