Meridian Public Works
Project Summary

For government to hold public trust, transparency and accountability are key. Citizens must know that their taxpayer dollars are being used wisely and responsibly. We have put together a summary of current and recently completed public works projects.

Included are projects with our federal, state, and regional partners, such as the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS), the Mississippi Department of Transportation (MDOT), Pat Harrison Waterway District (PHWD) and Lauderdale County.

It takes a team to keep our infrastructure up and running. The Office of the Mayor and the Meridian City Council would like to thank all of our partners for their support of our community.
