Meridian Mayor Assistant Richie McAlister and State House Representative Charles Young (D-Meridian) met last month with officials with NRN in Miami. On Tuesday, at the Meridian City Council’s work session, McAlister and Young gave an update on how Mayor Percy Bland’s administration is progressing with the network.

“The National Resource Network is helping us move forward with our downtown medical district,” McAlister said. “We hope to have a final report completed by the end of the year. One of the keys will be to see if these Federal TIGER Grants can help us in the area around the hospital.”
