MERIDIAN, Miss. (WTOK) - Since taking office, paving has been at the top of Mayor Jimmie Smith’s to-do list. He shared information with the city council Tuesday evening on how the projects have been going.

Smith said the city has started making some headway with streets being upgraded. There is a plan to expand the paving list for roads in 2022.

“Paving projects are going pretty well; we’ve got folks that are doing their jobs out there in Public Works and paving. They’re paving roads left and right when it’s warm. This time of year is the time we have to slow down a little bit for paving but we’re getting there. We’re doing what we need to do.”

Mayor Smith said he’s most excited for the paving project that will eventually take place on 8th Street.
