Compress property donated to city
By JAMIE PATTERSON
The Federal Compress was donated to the city of Yazoo City this week, pending the owners are given time to clean out any salvageable items.
The Yazoo landmark, located on Water Street, was heavily damaged last year when a fire consumed it. The owners of the property have spent the last several months cleaning the shell of the once bustling agriculture center.
The owners appeared before the Board of Mayor and Aldermen this week, requesting that city leaders accept their donation of the property.
