FORREST COUNTY, MS (WDAM) -

The Hattiesburg Mayor and the Hattiesburg Arts Council reached out to the Forrest County Board of Supervisors for funding to make a community arts center a reality. 

Mayor Johnny DuPree along with members of the arts council asked the board for $25,000. 

This money would go toward the council's goal of a $75,000 plan to make the old Hattiesburg American building a Community Arts Center for the citizens of Forrest County. 

The board has not made a decision about the money at this time.
