Petal mayor delivers State of the City address

Petal Mayor Carl Scott is touting the accomplishments of his three years in office while praising the progress of the friendly city.

In his annual, "State of the City" address Thursday, Scott said Petal has seen much success in the areas of transportation, economic development and recreation since he took office in 2005. There is still much work to be done, he added especially in the area of drainage.

"We're trying to focus on that and trying to allocate our resources intelligently enough to be able to take care of these problems as they come up, and hopefully, if we stick with it and stay focused on our plan, we'll get these all resolved one day and can pretty much eliminate that as a concern," said Scott.
