Welcome to The City of Quitman

Quitman is ideally situated between two beautiful lakes and a pristine river.  Clarkco State Park is located just to the north of our city, while Archusa Water Park is located inside the city limits to the east.  The Chickasawhay River borders Quitman to the west and was used by keel boats to bring in building supplies that started construction of the city.  Recreation is very important to our citizens with hunting, fishing, golfing, canoeing, and camping reigning supreme.

Today the Quitman Woman’s Club presented City of Quitman Mayor Steve Watkins with a Wear Red Day Proclamation designating February 3, 2023 as American Heart Association’s Go Red for Women.  The movement motivates women to determine their risk for cardiovascular diseases and stroke.  Shown left to right are Clubwomen:  Ann Potuk, Elaine Read, Carole Loper, Debora Reese, Becky Watkins, Judy Roberts and Meredith Carney witnessing, Mayor Steve Watkins signing.

 

 

“I recently received the following letter from Governor Tate Reeves awarding the City of Quitman $600,00.00 to be used for much needed wastewater and sewer improvements.  Even though this particular grant cannot be allocated for the City’s stormwater issue, it is a step in the right direction to solving other issues we face with an aging infrastructure.  It was almost a year ago when the City began the process of securing this grant and many of our residents participated in completing the necessary surveys that made all the difference.  I would like for all of you to know how much I appreciate your help and how your effort was not in vain.”    Mayor Steve Watkins

 

 

 

MEDICAL CANNABIS FACILITY BUFFER ZONE

Part of the Mississippi Department of Health and Mississippi Department of Revenue Cannabis Facility Application Process requires a land survey by a Mississippi-licensed surveyor proving that the main entrance of the facility is not within 1,000 feet of a school, church, or childcare facility’s nearest property line.  The following link will provide an approximate visual representation of adapting this requirement to the City of Quitman
