BRUCE, Miss. (WTVA) - The Bruce Board of Aldermen voted unanimously to rename its fire department and police department offices.

It will be named after two men who Mayor Rudy Pope describes as "bigger than life and both deserving."


Stan Evans and John Brasher both passed away last year and dedicated several years to the city.

City Clerk Rita Talford says their names will be placed above the fire and police department signs.
