FEMA Gives Final Approval for Cemetery Repairs in Biloxi
From: City of Biloxi Vincent Creel Filed 3/17/07 GCN
The City of Biloxi, which this week received a final OK from FEMA to restore the storm-ravaged beachfront section of the Biloxi City Cemetery, expects to begin construction on the project in the next couple of weeks.
The $300,000 project will see repairs made to more than 200 headstones and 10 tombs in the beachfront cemetery. Dozens of gravesites, some dating back to the early 1800s, were ravaged by Hurricane Katrina on Aug. 29, 2005.
