Biloxi's Updated Web Site

The city of Biloxi has had its web site since 1996. City leaders say they have so much information to put on the site they've had to redesign and upgrade it. From the status of major projects in the city, to a look at this year's Mardi Gras parade schedules, this web site is sure to keep you informed. City spokesman Vincent Creel explains, "On the front page you can find anything that you needed to find whether it was a building permit, whether you want to cut down a tree, you can get rental information for any city facility."

He says one day you may never need to step into city hall or any city facility to do business because soon you'll be able to take care of all business on the computer. For now, there are many services you can complete on-line. "For instance, if you've got a code enforcement problem you'll be able to fill out the permit on-line and send it in and you can do it at your own convenience" said Creel.

With so much construction on the coast, one section of the web site will always come in handy. You can check traffic updates, including road closings and road projects twice a day. "To look for visitor information to things like city council agendas. The goal of the web site is to provide everything you need from city hall on a 24-hour basis, 7 days a week. It gives you access to your city government around the clock" said Creel. That round the clock information is also available to you through a weekly briefing... that you can sign up for. It's sent straight to you via e-mail each week with the latest news and information in the city.
