SOUTHAVEN, Miss. (AP) - Southaven approved $6.5 million in general obligation bonds last year to cover its share of the estimated costs for four road improvement projects that are scheduled to be done over the next four years.

At this week’s meeting of the Board of Aldermen, the projects moved closer to reality as the board authorized Mayor Darren Musselwhite to send a letter to the Mississippi Department of Transportation verifying the city has the funding to cover its share of the costs.

The Commercial Appeal reports (https://bit.ly/1cADU0L ) the city submitted its road projects requests last year to the Memphis Metropolitan Planning Organization, a regional multi-jurisdictional agency responsible for planning long-range transportation needs, of which DeSoto County is a part.
