D'IBERVILLE, MS (WLOX) - Harrison County leaders are starting an early dialogue to help D'Iberville with its growing pains.
Harrison County supervisors Beverly Martin and Connie Rockco held a workshop Wednesday to look at water and sewer needs that will be part of residential and commercial growth in the next 10 or 20 years.
It was the same discussion held earlier with the City of Biloxi. Officials say within the next five years, the biggest growth will be along the I-10 corridor; west of the Promenade.
Highway 15 is also expected to grow with a new ball field in the area. D'Iberville Councilman Randall Pelous says the county is helping the city look beyond just current problems.
"When you've got aging infrastructure, that becomes a problem," said Pelous. "We just want to head that off....The county has been kind enough to get in there with us and just start focusing on things for the future, and that makes everything better."
Wednesday's meeting was one of many workshops and officials meetings the Harrison County Supervisors will have on infrastructure needs in the City of D'Iberville.
