Casino to present check to aldermen

NATCHEZ — The Natchez Board of Aldermen will receive a check to pay for police patrol car laptops and bids for the North Natchez Drainage Project at today’s meeting.

Premier Gaming Group President Kevin Preston is scheduled to present the city with a check for $18,000 for the purchase of laptops in patrol cars. Preston’s group is responsible for the development of Magnolia Bluffs Casino on Roth Hill Road.

The check will cover 18 laptops and their mounting hardware for Natchez Police Department patrol cars. The city, Brown said, will be purchasing the software for the computers.

City Engineer David Gardner said the city will receive bids for construction Phase II-B of the North Natchez Drainage Project.

Gardner said the aldermen will more than likely take the bids under advisement and award the contract at a later date. He said he hopes to have construction under way by March 2013.

Phase II-B will entail drainage work for Buckner’s Alley, such as the field behind the Natchez Children’s Home and the areas going toward Elm Street.

Representatives from the AJFC Community Action Agency will appear before the board during its finance meeting before the regular meeting to inform the board of AJFC services that could benefit residents.

Some of those services, Chief Executive Officer Sandra Sewell said, include Head Start, community service block grants and a low-income energy assistance program that provides bill assistance.

The board’s finance meeting begins at 9 a.m. and the regular meeting at 11 a.m.
