The City of Hattiesburg is located in both Forrest and Lamar Counties and is divided into five wards, each containing approximately 9,000 residents. Wards are redistricted following each census.
The City Council switched to open, or "paperless" government in 2011. You can see the agenda and the documents associated with each item, as well as available minutes, at http://hattiesburg.legistar.com. You can comment on specific agenda items at the legistar site.
You can also comment on specific agenda items at Let's Talk Hattiesburg, the Council's new citizen participation page. We invite you to participate in surveys, forums, and discussions, and to submit your ideas and suggestions for improving the city.
