BROOKHAVEN, Miss. (AP) — A southwest Mississippi city is finally getting around to extending services to some neighborhoods that it annexed a decade ago.
The Daily Leader reports that Brookhaven aldermen are agreeing to borrow $8.5 million from two state loan funds to extend water and sewer lines to parts of the 3,000-resident territory.
City engineer Mike McKenzie says the project also includes renovation and repair of the city’s sewage treatment plant.
Construction is expected to begin as early as next month. McKenzie says residents will be able to stop using septic tanks and wells.
