HATTIESBURG, Miss. (AP) - Hattiesburg’s Department of Public Works closed 2014 with a flurry of projects across the city, and Director Larry Barnes doesn’t expect the pace to slow in 2015.

Barnes tells The Hattiesburg American (https://hatne.ws/1vRMQle ) Hattiesburg will look like a cleaner city and a more attractive city.

Barns says one of the largest projects on his department’s plate will be the operation and expansion of the curbside recycling program the city recently took over.

Barnes said about 500 to 600 households had signed up for the $3-a-month service.

Mayor Johnny DuPree said one of his goals in the New Year is to approach the City Council about instituting raises based on merit for city workers.

Dupree says it is needed to help the city retain its most-skilled and best workers.
