The following is a press release from the City of Hattiesburg:

The City Council's special committee on tornado recovery will meet at 6 p.m., March 25 in Room 305 at Parkway Heights United Methodist Church.

The committee, Hattiesburg Unites to rebuild is comprised of City Council members from the wards hardest hit by the February 10, tornado that struck Hattiesburg.  HUB members Deborah Delgado, Ward 2; Carter Carroll, Ward 3; and Dave Ware, Ward 4, plan to formulate directions for the community's recovery.

Initially, committee members will focus on compiling data on specific needs of storm victims, as well as on assistance available from volunteers and from other resources.  That data will become the basis for an online clearinghouse HUB will establish through Let's Talk, Hattiesburg, a new citizen participation web site that will go live in coming weeks.

The HUB meeting is open to the public.  For more information or to contact a committee member, call the City Council office at 601-545-4551 or email council@hattiesburgms.com.
