PASCAGOULA, Miss. (AP) - The Jackson County Civic Center is in the middle of a $1.5 million facelift.

County Supervisor Melton Harris tells WLOX-TV (https://bit.ly/1IhuhhD ) the improvements are long overdue.

With new windows, new bricks and a new roof, workers are giving the Civic Center a whole new look. Still, county officials said benefits of the facade go way beyond aesthetics.

Harris says the extra facade will help better insulate the building. Upgrades will also occur in the kitchen, bathrooms, flooring and speaker system. Officials said that work will be done in stages because the building is heavily used by the community.

Officials say much of the interior work will be done by next year.

When all is done, Harris is confident taxpayers will see it as money well spent.
