HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - Hattiesburg Mayor Toby Barker attended the League of Women Voters Meeting at the Jackie Dole Sherrill Community Center Monday.
The mayor took questions from audience members on a range of issues including the city's budget and education.
One topic of concern for many residents was Mt. Carmel Baptist Church.
The mayor said the city council has scheduled a public hearing, putting it up for bids if that's the route that's chosen.
He said the safety of citizens is a main concern, and keeping Main Street closed for the least amount of time.
