Barry Tours City Departments

Meridian mayor-elect Cheri Barry toured some of the city's offices and departments Friday to get a feel for its operations.

Her stops included parks and recreation and the waste water treatment, and met city employees.

"As mayor elect, I'm just making sure I have all my bases covered," said Barry. "And I'm able to talk to all of the different department heads, so we can provide the basic services to the people, from the potholes in the streets to the sewage lines to the water treatment."

A swearing-in ceremony will be held July 2. Barry's first official day on the job is July 6.

    Oh no he is not qualified to be her CAO. He is a waiter at The Rustler. My question is what is Kirk Thompson doing following her around. Talk about a lost puppy.

    Why is that Peavy guy following around everywhere she goes now? I know he ran her campaign and now he is following her around everywhere she goes like a little sad puppy. Is that who is going to be her CAO or her little puppy?
