Gulfport Gets Grant for Floating Docks

 Gulfport will get new floating docks by the Casino, courtesy of the state and federal government. On Tuesday, May 9, the city learned it received a Boating Infrastructure Grant (BIG) from the United States Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) to rebuild the docks by the Casino. All the money comes from state and federal tax dollars; the state portion totals  $112,000; the federal monies come in the form of assessed submerged land value.
