COLLINS, MS (WDAM) -

The city of Collins, along with Mayor V.O. Smith, and the Board of Aldermen, held the grand opening of the Collins Civic Center on Sunday.

After years of planning, the city of Collins has a civic center where they can hosts events and meetings.

Dozens of residents and city officials attended the open house and viewed the new facility.

“It’s a wonderful feeling to have a building like this in a small town since Collins only has a 2,600 population,” said Mayor of Collins, V.O. Smith.

Although the facility has only been opened for a few weeks, it is beginning to get booked for several events.

The facility was funded in part by HUD, Mississippi Development Authority, and the city of Collins.
