BILOXI, MS (WLOX)
The mission of Biloxi Mayor FoFo Gilich to find funding to move the main gate from White Avenue to Division Street went to Washington D.C. last week. The trip also included Biloxi city officials as well as Gulfport Mayor Billy Hewes.
He said moving the gate to Division Street has been a priority for the base for a long time, but funding has always been a problem. However, Gilich’s effort may have worked.
Getting on the budget agenda will take a while. The 2016 budget is already locked in. Discussions for the 2017 budget begin in January. For those on the front lines, sooner is better than later.
