Walter Anderson Museum asks city for funds to preserve art
The chiller is part of a heating and air conditioning system that helps control the temperature and humidity at the Ocean Springs museum.

If the city pays one red cent to pay for the chiller or it's repair and then cries foul when it comes to city employee raises...they should be remocved from office.
If the art is that valuable go sale a piece and buy a new unit!!!!

The value of the art is in the eye of the family only. So overrated and a burden on the taxpayers. Terrible timing to be asking for money in OS.

You are VERY correct for once TTTT.
I believe I visited the museum once about 10-15 yrs ago. It was vaguely interesting but I wasn't blown away. Of course if they take the murals down from the community center & say sell it as one piece or in chunks -- there's no way we'd get 50 million or whatever they said the murals are worth for the cost to cover the taxpayer liability for it. And I'm sure the insurance valuation that actually affects the city's insurance and bond rating is probably affected by the "value" of the art.
I visited Shearwater Pottery about a decade ago & got lost and accidentally came upon one of the houses & was told I was trespassing. Idiots didn't even put up a sign to separate the gift store from their mansion on the beach.
As Warren Kulo's article pointed out the other day -- they have 12 squad cars sitting idle because they can't afford the payroll to pay the cops to drive them or the gas for the cars to ride. They can't even afford to keep the lights in the parks on and the idiots at the OSSD maxed out their millage paying for a mansion of a high school that they don't need.
The city is broke, even if they raise the 2 mils or whatever it is in taxes on property valuations. The city itself is only a few mils from maxing its millage.
Let WAMA get some private contributor to finance their air conditioning instead of begging Jackson Co. and the city to do it.
