New gas lines being laid in Moss Point

MOSS POINT -- The Board of Aldermen awarded the city's gas-line project to Graham Construction, which bid the initial cost of the project at $309,475.

Construction will begin within the month on Griffin Street. Diversified Consulting Engineers said 6,700 feet of pipe on Griffin Street will be replaced with polyethylene pipe. Griffin Street is a center point of piping distribution, so it is a high priority.

The total cost of the citywide project will be $1.3 million. The city is paying for the projects with Coastal Impact Assistance Program funding.

Bid approved for Gautier water-filtration system

GAUTIER -- The City Council approved a base bid of $2,168,154 by The Creel Co. for a million-gallon-per-day ion-exchange filtration system. The system will remove the brown coloring from Gautier's water supply. Construction will begin within 60 days and the system is expected to be up and running in 18 months.

The council also discussed revisions to the smoking ordinance. Councilman Rusty Anderson presented the revisions, which would allow smoking in bars and in restaurants with a designated smoking room and proper ventilation. The council passed the revisions 5 to 2.
