HATTIESBURG, Miss. (WDAM) - The 1% sales tax increase on hotel, motel and restaurants is paying off in Hattiesburg as renovations are underway at Thames Elementary School.

The 21-day project includes refurbishing the wooden floor of the gym, which has years of damage.

The gym will be a shared use facility by the school and the City of Hattiesburg.

There will be a grand re-opening for the gym on Sept. 26.
