Mayor seeks funding to complete bypass project
Mayor Andre’ DeBerry, in a press release, announced that last week while at the state capitol, he participated in meetings with chairman Percy Watson of the House Ways and Means Committee and chairman Tyrone Ellis of the House Public Utilities Committee.
DeBerry presented a request for funding to Watson, seeking $2,500,000 for completion of the North Holly Springs Industrial Park Road.
“This will allow for the completion of the Access Road to connect Highway 78 at the West Holly Springs exit,” DeBerry said.
“In addition it will allow for the development of industrial and commercial lands along the bypass. This will allow the completion of the road that was stopped because of project budget shortfalls.”
Mayor DeBerry also met with Ellis to discuss energy projects (specifically renewable energy) and concerns about rising rates to customers.
