Monday, Nov. 6

The Village of Natchez met Nov, 2 at 6 p.m. Visitors were Viola Porter, Monique Sarpy and Willie Hamilton. New business consisted of the CDBG road grant. It was noted that repairs are needed on our roadways in the community. It was also stated that we need a wall along the Natchez Bayou. Police business was next on the agenda. Chief of Police Gerald Johnson said all seems to be well and he will continue to patrol. He would like to thank participants who donated toward National Night Out and the volunteers. Without participation, help and donations, it would have not been successful. Sewer business was covered by Mayor Rosia Humphrey. The sewer revamping is underway.

Pumps will be on top of the ground. This will eliminate the majority of our problems. The Village has purchased a zero-turn mower through the LGAP grant. We are working diligently to get the community to where it needs to be. The financials were discussed and the motion was made to pay the bills for the month. Mayor comments were next on the agenda.
