The county and city went in together to fund the lobby services in September 2020.

At last Monday’s meeting of the Adams County Board of Supervisors, Supervisor Ricky Gray complained he did not know what the lobbyists were working on for the county and needed to know that information. Other supervisors echoed Gray’s concern.

Also on the city’s agenda for its Tuesday meeting:

• Discussion of the city’s waste collection and disposal services.

• Discussion of grants for Workforce Development and approval of a resolution of support for a Delta Regional Authority Grant.

• Discussion about an award of Merit from the Mississippi Historical Society for the City of Natchez and the NAACP.

• An update from the mayor on his recent trip to Washington, D.C., part of the Mississippi River Cities and Towns Initiative.

• Discussion of an agreement for street lighting for Ashburn Woods Subdivision.
