Gouguet adamant Goodyear Blvd and Memorial Blvd need to be paved
The Picayune City Council held a social distancing meeting and met via phone conference to take care of City business Tuesday afternoon.
On the meeting agenda was a request to advertise for bids on the city-wide paving project. Council member Wayne Gouguet brought forth a concern that two main roads were not included in the bid process. Gouguet said that since this motion and action was just for going out for bids, he would vote for it, but he was adamant the city must find the money to pave Goodyear and Memorial Boulevards.
“When we get to the end of this bidding process, then we will have a better idea of what things are going to cost and maybe the bids will come in under estimate and we can afford to pave these two roads,” Gouguet stated.
“But, if not, we are going to have to come up with some money somewhere to do it. These are major roads in the city.”
The council voted unanimously to move forward to advertise for bids for the city wide paving.
In other action taken, the council appointed Manya Creel, LLC as court prosecutor for the City of Picayune and Tara Kellar was appointed as prosecutor pro-temp.
