Hosemann Discusses Infrastructure Match Funds at Municipal Officials’ Conference

Gulfport, Miss. (WXXV) – The 92nd Mississippi Municipal League Conference is almost complete with day two of the conference finishing up this afternoon.

Elected officials, employees, and governor candidates opened day two of the conference, sharing remarks in the opening session.

Discussions today included how to increase revenue for officials in their respective cities and breakoff meetings for mayors in each regional section of the state.

Lt. Governor Delbert Hosemann tells us how over the past few years the state has allowed cities to grow in development. “We help cities by giving infrastructure money to them. We help cities by projects. We help them by paying $92 million of exemption, homestead exemption back for them. So, we are going down all the things we did to give them fire trucks and things like that. I think that’s really important to the cities.”

The Mississippi Municipal League Conference wraps up tomorrow.
