Legislature works on Cayce sewer district
The Mississippi Senate has put forth SB 3122 that would create a Cayce Community Sewer District in Marshall County.
The board of supervisors will have governing authority of a specific section of the franchise known as the Cayce Utility District with the permission of Marshall Utility Services Inc., a private company.
The intent of the measure is to provide sewer service to the residents, improve land values, and preserve and promote health, safety, welfare and convenience to residents of the district, according to the bill.
The bill was transmitted to the House March 23 and the House referred the bill to the Local and Private House Committee March 24. Senators Bill Stone and Doug Davis authored the bill in the Senate.
