Letter from the Mayor
On behalf of the City of Covington, I would like to extend a heart-felt welcome as you embark on your new business venture and let you know how truly appreciative I am that you have chosen Covington as your place of business.
With a population of 8,700, swelling to a daytime population estimated at 20,000, I believe you will come to see and agree with me that the City of Covington possesses a dynamic business environment while maintaining its friendly and unique small-town character. As a lifelong resident of Covington, my affection for the city remains constant. As your Mayor, I am committed to doing what it takes to foster a favorable economic climate and ensure prompt and courteous service by the city so that your business may grow, flourish and become as integral a part of Covington as the Bogue Falaya River itself.
My staff is willing and equipped to help you and your business with any problems or issues that may arise pertaining to the services we offer, from utilities to permits, licensing and more. In addition, I am always interested in your input. If you have any questions or issues that you would like to discuss, don't hesitate to pick up a phone and call me at (985) 898-4720.
