MRC Public Hearing in August

The Mississippi River Commission (MRC) will host a public hearing on August 14 at the Cape Girardeau, Missouri Riverfront, aboard the Motor Vessel MISSISSIPPI. The hearing is open to the public and scheduled to begin at 9 a.m.

Part of their annual low-water inspection trip, the Commission holds public hearings to gain insight into local, state and regional concerns and allow the public a greater voice in shaping federal policy in the Mississippi River Watershed.

Additionally, the interaction with the public, congressional, federal and state interests, local boards and non-government organizations is crucial to the decision-making process of the MRC.

Local interests are invited to present their views and concerns on matters affecting the water resources infrastructure needs in the Mississippi Valley, including flood control and the Mississippi River and Tributaries project, environmental issues, recreation, navigation and others.

All meetings will be open to the public with the agenda as follows:

  • Presentations to the commission by local organizations and members of the public giving views or comments on any issue affecting the programs or projects of the commission and the Corps of Engineers;
  • Summary report by president of the commission on national and regional issues affecting the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and commission programs and projects on the Mississippi River and its tributaries;
  • District commander’s overview for the commission on current project issues in the respective district area.
