Fire inspection in Laurel could save taxpayers money

LAUREL, MS (WDAM) -

City officials in Laurel are working to improve its fire rating to help taxpayers save money.

According to Mayor Johnny Magee, the Mississippi Fire Rating Bureau will complete an inspection in the city Tuesday.

They will inspect the city’s water supply, fire hydrants and other things that make the city’s fire department operate more efficiently.

Magee said if the city’s ratings go from five to four, insurance and taxes should go down for residents.

He also said city officials have been working hard on behalf of taxpayers to give them some much needed relief.

“We’ve put in several new fire hydrants,"Magee said. "We’ve also purchased a new fire truck. We’ve built a fire station and all that’s happened since the last inspection."

    Following a school-record 55 wins and run that ended in an 8-7 loss in the NJCAA national championship, Jones County Junior College softball is eager to open the 2018 season on February 3. Coming that close to the school’s first national title serves as motivation enough for the Lady Bobcats. Regardless, expectations are always high for coach Chris Robinson’s teams – JCJC is a combined 105-12 the last two seasons.
