Mississippi River Commission to host public meeting at Natchez waterfront

Published Aug. 16, 2016
The Motor Vessel MISSISSIPPI, like her predecessors, serves as an inspection vessel for the MRC and working towboat during the revetment season.  Each spring, during traditional high water, and late summer, during traditional lower water, the Commission conducts a series of public meetings aboard the vessel at various river communities.  These gatherings enable local interests and the public to bring their views and concerns before the MRC and engage in dialogues with its members.
