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.
