Do you know that the City of Gulfport has an app? It’s called Gulfport Connect.
Since the City rolled out 311 and the citizens’ request call center, citizens have helped us identify issues that need to be addressed all over Gulfport. Now, we have an app that will help relay accurate information with GPS accuracy and photographic detail…even anonymously.
Track your reported issues.
And pay utility bills.
For avid recyclers, Waste Pro has made a 36 gallon cart available to purchase for a one-time cost of $45. To place your order call Paige at (228)818-5393 x226. This is a separate purchase from your utility bill from the City. Payment for the cart will be made to Waste Pro directly. Waste Pro will deliver your cart to your address.
Installing Dedeaux Widening Phase 1
According to engineers overseeing the project:
• 35% total construction (based upon dollars spent) is complete. 61% of the time has elapsed.
• Paving has started
I spoke with project supervisors for Moran Hauling recently, and they remain confident that they will meet the project deadline of the end of this year. (Some large cost items such as the decorative street lamps have yet to be purchased and will quickly reduce the lag in cost expenditures.)
