Audit questions use of Katrina money in Mississippi

Thursday, 02 January 2014 15:38 Published in National News
JACKSON, Miss. (AP) - A new federal report says Mississippi officials accepted unsupported population growth estimates in developing a plan to use $653 million in federal Hurricane Katrina recovery money for water and wastewater facilities, including some that may not be needed.
 
The Department of Housing and Urban Development's Office of Inspector General also questioned appraisals used to buy private land.
 
In June 2012, The Associated Press reported on concerns raised by residents and officials concerning the population estimates and the use of eminent domain to acquire private land for projects that may not be needed for years, if ever.
 
Among other things, the report recommends that Mississippi put procedures in place so that future projects are based on "objective and relevant population data."

He says the Long Island Expressway will be closed at midnight on most of the island. The New York Thruway also will be closed from Albany south at midnight.
 
Cuomo says plans are for the highways to reopen at 5 a.m. Friday, but a decision will be made by 4 a.m.
 
The governor also declared a state of emergency Thursday and urged people to "seriously consider" staying home.
 
He says mass transit isn't expected to be hampered.

Nearly two weeks after a jewelry store burglary, police are still looking for the suspects.

 

On the evening of December 20 and employee at Mississippi Mud Gallery and Gifts in Imperial, MO noticed a rear window had been opened. The Jefferson County Sheriff's Department says the thief made off with tens of thousands of dollars in jewelry.

 

Anyone with information on the burglary is asked to contact the Jefferson County Sheriff's Department at 636-262-3965.
