Mayor

AS MAYOR OF THE GREAT CITY OF HOLLY SPRINGS I WOULD LIKE TO WELCOME YOU TO OUR CITY WEB PAGE.

Holly Springs is a city filled with a rich history and inspiring tradition. These great qualities serve as the foundation for the spirit that guides our progressive vision for the future. For more than 175 years the people of Holly Springs have shaped the true heritage of this community. This heritage combines the enthusiasm of a diverse and determined people with the deeply rooted values of a small Mississippi town.  Whether it is the legendary musical talents or the beaming architecture of the antebellum mansions. Holly Springs is the little City on the hill.

Our city on the hill is located in a geographically ideal location in northeast Mississippi.  We are just a thirty minute drive from the Memphis metropolitan transportation center.   Successful city planning and investments in quality of life initiatives have allowed the city to create a wonderful place to live and raise a family.  As a small town, Holly Springs offers a variety of public and private venues for family friendly activities.  The historic town square offers just the right mix of small town charm and home grown business development.  On the south side of town nestled along future Interstate 22 and Highway 7 is a modern business district ideal for future retail and business development.

Our City school system has been recognized as one the most improved schools in the state in student achievement.  Efforts to maintain low taxes while ensuring solid investment in infrastructure provides an excellent environment for business development.  Team efforts involving Marshall County government and the City are leading the way to more robust economic and industrial development throughout the area.  All of these efforts attempt to focus on improving Quality of Life and Quality of Place.

As Mayor I would like to express my appreciation for your interest in one of the greatest communities in the state.  We welcome you to come and see what a wonderful place Holly Springs really is. If we can be of any service to you please do not hesitate to contact me or any of our staff.

Sincerely,

Kelvin O. Buck
Mayor, City of Holly Springs
