The City of Vicksburg is proud to support the wood energy export industry in the State of Mississippi! With 19.8 million acres of forestland, forestry generates over $12 billion dollars in positive economic impact to the state and provides jobs for nearly 70,000 Mississippians. Being the nation’s 11th largest inland port, a Foreign Trade Zone, a Port of Entry, home to a United States Customs Service, AND a chief exporter of wood materials, the City of Vicksburg proudly stands with this industry to boost the state’s economy.
Willis Thompson, of the city of Vicksburg, has graduated from the Basic Level of the Certified Municipal official (CMO) program sponsored by the Mississippi Municipal League (MML). Under this program, local elected officials complete training and activities directly related to understanding and improving the management of local municipal issues.
Alderman Thompson received the Basic CMO certification, which is earned by accumulating a minimum of 60 hours of training presented by the MML. The program is designed to take about two years to complete.
Congratulations to the Vicksburg Police Department. Because of their efforts to complete the Law Enforcement Accreditation Program, recognition was given by the State of Mississippi with the House Concurrent Resolution No. 126. Kudos to Vicksburg Police Department for their continued dedication to the City of Vicksburg.
