Gulfport's Savings Accounts

Q: Does the city have an interest-bearing account for its reserves? What rate of return does it get?

A: Yes. The city maintains interest-bearing accounts for all its money. The interest rate hovers between one and two percent, which City Manager Jim O’Reilly says is because the city needs to stay liquid and cannot tie up money for long periods of time.
