MCCOMB, Miss. (AP) — The Board of Selectmen has approved a lease agreement for the city's Railroad Depot Museum to take over the empty space the Pike County Chamber of Commerce and economic development district once shared.
The Enterprise-Journal reports (http://bit.ly/1ouv5bi ) a large portion of the depot has been vacant since the chamber and economic district split.
The museum will pay $10 per year for the city-owned building. The city will continue to pay utilities and maintain the building, but the museum will keep the building clean and be responsible for telephone and Internet services.
The lease also states the city will insure the contents of the museum since the artifacts, bells and whistles are city property.
