PASCAGOULA, Miss. (AP) - Pascagoula residents could get a new sportsplex as well as street, drainage and utility upgrades after the city council agreed to obtain $25 million in bonds.

For several weeks, council members have hammered out a projects plan. The Sun Herald reports (https://bit.ly/1u3glmx ) they agreed on the amount during a meeting Monday night.

The council will borrow three separate bonds — two general obligation bonds and one revenue bond for utility projects.

As part of the plan, $10 million will go for parks and recreation projects, including baseball and softball fields and new lighting for soccer fields; $8 million will go to streets and drainage projects, and $7 million for water, sewer and gas upgrades.
