WLOX Editorial: Moss Point residents deserve better

MOSS POINT, MS (WLOX) - The good people of Moss Point Mississippi deserve better. It appears the people are the victims of poor accountability from local government.

For years, many customers have not paid their water bills and nothing was done about it. As each month rolled by, no bill was paid, service was not cut off and still they never paid. Apparently the problem is so big that the city has a more than $3 million deficit. Three million dollars goes a long way in a town of some 13,000 people, paying for things like police and fire departments, road paving,and drainage improvements.

We hope auditors will get to the bottom of this and the good people of Moss Point get good accountable government that they deserve. That's our opinion, we would like to hear yours. Email your thoughts to editorials@wlox.com.
