The Oktibbeha County Board of Supervisors heard from the executive director of the Tombigbee River Valley Water Management District at its meeting Monday, after voting to join earlier in the year.

Executive Director David Kennard came to the meeting to discuss the board’s next steps for working with the district to clean out its creeks. Creeks throughout the county are backing up and creating flooding issues in times of heavy rain.

Kennard’s visit also came after two Oktibbeha County residents brought more concerns about creeks near their property to the board at its previous meeting.
