Thanks to the tens of thousands that attended View the Cruise & Hardy Court - especially the volunteers, city staff, Gulfport High students, local merchants / restaurants & most importantly the Cruisers.

Gulfport City Council adds interpreter for hard of hearing
GULFPORT, Miss. (AP) - An interpreter for the hearing impaired is now signing at regular meetings of the Gulfport City Council.

The Sun Herald reports ( http://tinyurl.com/puc9y2q ) the service started with Tuesday's council meeting. Council president Rusty Walker estimated the cost at $100 to $200 a meeting, depending on how long the session lasts. He said a federal grant is covering most of the expense.

Walker said nobody had complained about the lack of interpreting services at the meeting, but residents have told him they don't attend because they are unable to hear and there would be no point.

Interpreters will be used at all regular meetings, and can be scheduled on request for special meetings, provided there is time.

The City of Gulfport Heart Walk team had a great day last week & even exceeded their fundraising goal of $6,000....Great work!

We hope you're hungry! The City of Gulfport is excited to welcome 6 new restaurants in the upcoming weeks!
