Large retailer still interested in Yazoo
By VERNON SIKES
No specific names were mentioned in Tuesday's Public Service Commission (PSC) board meeting, but it appears Yazoo City is still in the running for a “major retailer.”
When PSC Chairman Wardell Leach questioned PSC engineer Wayne Morrison about progress on “contact with the retailer,” Morrison said he contacted “them yesterday (Monday), and they're still working on their side of the plans.”
Morrison added that the retailer is waiting for the city to get the right-of-way for the Willie Morris Parkway. Local officials are not able to identify the business in question due to confidentiality agreements.
Just prior to Leach's question, Morrison said he continues to work on acquiring rights-of-way for the parkway.
