The Leland Board of Aldermen has declined a request to help fund the Highway 61 Blues Project

July 12, 2013

Aldermen said no to a request for 6-thousand dollars to help fund the Highway 61 Blues Museum in Leland. Project officials said other cities have set a precedent of helping to fund museums in their communities, but Aldermen said they were concerned that the funding would end up going to the Mighty Mississippi Festival planned for October. That festival is scheduled for Greenville’s Warfield Point Park, and Aldermen said they won’t help fund a festival that isn’t in Leland.
