DMR to ask city to lease property where Jaycee Hut is located

BILOXI, MS (WLOX) - On Tuesday, Department of Marine Resources (DMR) officials will ask the City of Biloxi if they can lease the property where the old Jaycee Hut is located in Biloxi next to the DMR headquarters.

DMR officials confirm they want to demolish the old Jaycee Hut and build a covered agency boat storage facility for DMR.

According to the lease contract, DMR wants to lease the property for $1 a year.

City spokesperson Vincent Creel said the cinder block building has been vacant since Hurricane Katrina heavily damaged it. Creel said the building was used as a meeting place for the Biloxi Jaycees.

Also on Tuesday, the Governor's Oyster Restoration and Resiliency Council will meet at 9 a.m. at the Maritime and Seafood Industry Museum in Biloxi.
