Mayor George Schloegel told the City Council Tuesday afternoon that the city will apply for BP oil cleanup funds. Schloegel said the city will use the money to prepare for oil onshore. He did not say how much money the city will request, but BP has made available $25 million for Mississippi cities and counties.
Hopefully, I'll be able to reach the mayor today to find out more. Look for an update at sunherald.com.
