Municipal park improvements continue

Wesson’s Board of Aldermen is continuing to allocate funds from the Blue Cross Blue Shield $100,000 Home Town grant for municipal park improvements, including, most recently, lighting and extension of the walking track, while work on the war memorial and garden in the park remains on hold pending additional donations.


In other recent actions, the Aldermen:

·         Approved sale of the former Police Department headquarters building to Carlos and Abbey Garcia for $45,000.


·         Commended graduation of Police Officer Brandon O’Quinn from the Mississippi Law Enforcement Officers’ Training Academy (MLEOTA), which provides based and advanced classes for state, county and municipal law enforcement agencies. 


·         Accepted resignation of Police Officer Andrew Reactor and approved hiring of Norma Cohn as a full-time police officer in training.


·         Authorized emergency work on the town water tower by Dungan Engineering for $7,500.


·         Approved attendance of the Mayor, Town Clerk, Public Works Director and Aldermen at the June 24-27 Mississippi Municipal League conference.


 For upcoming meetings, Mayor Alton Shaw placed two items on the agenda of the Aldermen:


·         Review of current election maps and required redistricting.


·         Need for a code enforcement officer.
