City of Ocean Springs Public Safety Complex Ribbon Cutting | Business
Ocean Springs, MS: The City of Ocean Springs will hold a ribbon cutting for the new Public Safety Complex on Friday, February 3, 2012 at 4:00 p.m.
The new 27,000 sq. ft. facility is located at 3810 Bienville Boulevard, and will house the police station, municipal court, and correctional facility. Municipal Judge Matthew Mestayer is very much looking forward to use of the new facility.
“It is spectacular,” he says. “It was much needed, as we had outgrown the old one. It is consistent with the new direction in which the city is headed.”
Chief Lionel Cothern says, “The new station is the biggest morale booster the city’s administration could have given to the law enforcement community. This new facility will allow us room to grow, and will help us to serve the public’s safety needs even better than before.”
The project was funded by the 2% food and beverage referendum, and cost approximately $4,000,000. “We invite the public to join us for this exciting event,” said Mayor Connie Moran. “Our police officers put their lives on the line for our safety everyday, and we are proud to honor them with this new facility.”
