City of Holly Springs receives water funds
U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Rural Development approved a Water and Waste Disposal loan of $638,000 and a grant of $1,694,600 for the City of Holly Springs, Congressman Travis Childers announced last week.
“The USDA’s contribution represents a continued investment in the health and quality of life of the residents of Holly Springs,” Congressman Childers said.
“These significant funds will help ensure that North Mississippi’s water and waste systems are up-to-date and able to successfully serve their users.”
Rural Development funds will be used to construct 36.4 miles of distribution lines for the Marianna Community.
There is need for additional facilities because the past 70-80 years that the water system has been in use, the City of Holly Springs has increased in customer growth.

Merchants & Farmers Bank has started a special fund to aid tornado victims in the area.
Contributions can be made at all bank branches or mailed to any Merchants & Farmers location – P.O. Box 86, Ashland, MS 38603; P.O. Box 69, Hickory Flat, MS 38633; P.O. Box 58, Byhalia, MS 38611; or P.O. Box 700, Holly Springs, MS 38635.
