Hancock permits in, all beaches closed

Here’s the Hancock County building permit report for the week of Oct. 2-6:
Two permits were issued totaling $244,699 in value and $1,087 in fees. Both were for residential projects: a pole barn on Kiln Picayune Road and a single family house on Runnymede Road.
The Bay St. Louis report was not available. Look for Waveland’s report soon.
In other news:

The Mississippi Department of Environmental Quality issued a closure today for all beaches across the Mississippi Gulf Coast.

The beaches are closed to access as a public health precaution until the hurricane debris is removed and until water sampling and analysis can resume. The water quality contact closures will remain in place until two consecutive samples indicate bacteria levels no longer pose a risk to human health. Sand beach areas may open for public use at the discretion of local city and county officials; however, water access will remain restricted until MDEQ reopens waters for recreation.

More information about the Mississippi Beach Monitoring Program and the location of beach sampling stations is available at: http://opcgis.deq.state.ms.us/beaches.
