Pascagoula considering new City Hall project

Pascagoula considering new City Hall project

PASCAGOULA, MS (WLOX) - Could a new City Hall be in the future for Pascagoula? Council members heard a presentation Tuesday night about long-term plans a new city government complex and visitors center.

City offices are scattered across downtown in various buildings. A new city hall would bring together all departments and streamline city services.

"Bringing everyone to one location would enable us to render service faster," said Pascagoula spokesperson Anne Pitre.

There is no funding in place to build a new city hall, that would come later after leaders get a better idea of what they want.

"The idea is in its very early stages. We are trying to come up with a design that would be a catalyst for economic development," Pitre said.
