PASCAGOULA, MS (WLOX) - Pascagoula is one of the only coastal cities that didn't rebuild its city hall following Hurricane Katrina. But, that could potentially change.
In Tuesday's council meeting, the city began the initial planning for a unified complex for all city offices.
The offices are currently spread throughout the city. City hall is located on Watts Ave., utilities are a block over on Delmas Ave., and public works over on 14th St. There are even more offices on Pascagoula St.
"Consolidating some of the departments into one location will allow us to give more efficient service to the public," said Pascagoula public Relations specialist Anne Pitre.
Tuesday night, the city got the OK from the council to move forward with a contractor. Pitre says many city buildings are packed and need more space. The records vault in city hall, for example, is near capacity.
