13th Check for Hattiesburg Police/Fire Retirees Heads to Governor

Yesterday, the House and Senate approved HB 1778, which would allow a 13th check to be made to retired Hattiesburg police officers and firemen. The 13th check equates to a cost of living increase.

Councilman Dave Ware pushed this on the local level, and it passed 3-0. It then had to come to the legislature for approval in the form of a Local & Private bill.
