The following information is based on FBI Crime Report Data, which takes into consideration both violent and property crimes, of Mississippi cities with a population of 2,000 or above.

New City Hall Open!

We’re finally in our beautiful new Municipal Complex, and we are soooooo excited to be here! Watch this space for details on an “Open House” once we get completely settled in. Our phone numbers have not changed, just the location of our offices. Come to the new addition for City Hall, the Mayor’s office, Planning and Zoning, and the Water Department. City Court, traffic ticket payments and the Police Department will stay in our original building.
