The Rez now has an app.

The Pearl River Valley Water Suppy District issued the following statement.

The Rez app ready for Apple devices

The Pearl River Valley Water Supply District has introduced a new cell phone app —called The Rez —that is free and currently available for Apple devices at the App Store.

It will be available to Android users in mid to late April.

“Since the technology exists to help connect our agency with the public, especially our constituents who live at The Rez, we decided to utilize it,” said PRVWSD general manager John Sigman. “This app gives people immediate access to emergency announcements and other information about Barnett Reservoir.”

For example, when PRVWSD residents register, and include their subdivision, a program within the app will allow the agency to immediately contact the user with announcements, such as boil water notices, that affect specific areas.

The app’s home page includes weather and links to PRVWSD’s staff, upcoming events, accounts, regulations, recreational opportunities and the opportunity to set up on-line payments.

Find The Rez app today at Apple’s app store, download it and be better connected with PRVWSD and the reservoir community

Great use of my fees (taxes).

You should probably dump all your tea in the reservoir, dressed in a nifty tricorner hat, to protest this insufferable outrage. Try not to get any on the 285 boats out there using the Rez for free, after I take a dump upstream of your leasehold, as 10,000 speeders pass by unchecked by the government intrusions called radar and law enforcement. Who needs boil water alerts?

I wonder who the app developer is who pitched this and conned PRVWSD into paying for it?

The real question is, will it lead you to your car when you can't find it the morning after the shuckers crawfish boil?

Most 9th graders in suburban schools can develop at app. I'll bet you we decided to pay $100,000 for it.

Kind of like the MDOT app that tells you there was a wreck yesterday.

They went with an out-of-state firm. Who is surprised?

Can't believe Kingfish is publishing something that might be the least bit controversial regarding Sigmond's Rez. Wow!

can you watch the chief of the reservoir police working over an all - you can- eat- buffet? or maybe watch that redneck reservoir patrolman from oregon with the rotten teeth, make DUI stops on women and then call them up for a date?

Yeah, the Rez is a veritable Somalia when it comes to law enforcement. You 'tough on crime' folks are so predictable. You change your tune as soon as 'those people' have been thoroughly bilked and they start pulling over you and yours to fill those coffers.

Has Sigman retired? I know The Kingfish would not publish anything the least bit negative or controversial about PRVWSD as long as he's still at the helm.

Sigmoid has not retired. He will be there for life.

the PRVWSD IS AN ABSOLUTE JOKE. they are nothing but an administrative agency created by the legislature back in the 1960s. the legislator who pushed it through was one john hampton stennis. and guess what, his law firm ended up doing all the legal work for the PRVWSD for the next 40 years and made a fortune . the PRVWSD IS RUN BY A bunch of unelected bozo appointees , just like their mall-cop 'police" department. the best thing that could ever happen to the property owners at the reservoir would be for the legislature to abolish the PRVWSD and had it over to rankin and madison counties to be run by an elected board of supervisors.

Use Fees, Ramp Charges and More Control.. said...

7:57 PM on March 14 FOR THE WIN!

Is there a webcam where I can watch the Harbor Walk development progress (or at least see if any fisherman are being chased off from the site)?

this article says that the app "will give information about the barnett reservoir". march 14 @ 7:57 tells you the " information" that they DO NOT want you to know.

when the feds get through flushing the toilet on that administrative agency called the ms dept of corrections, i hope they come and flush the toilet on the PRVWSD, because they are just as bad.

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).

Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.

In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.
