COLUMBUS, Miss. (WCBI) — Two study committees could make a difference in how Columbus looks in the future.

The City Council Tuesday night appointed one committee to research ways to not only clean up dilapidated properties but also to encourage investment in vacant lots and older homes.

Councilman Kabir Karriem says the goal is to use potential incentives to improve neighborhoods and property values which in turn will generate more tax revenue.

The other committee will study the city’s ban on new billboards.

A new company has offered to split revenues with the city to the tune of as much as 60 thousand dollars a year.

Some council members say it might be worth considering.
