SALTILLO, Miss. (WTVA) - Public Service Commissioner Brandon Presley has scheduled a public hearing to be held in Saltillo next month regarding dirty drinking water.

On Friday, June 29, Presley sent a letter to the city's mayor and aldermen.

"As I clearly relayed to all of you in our meeting in May regarding complaints of dirty water by your customers, I would take further action if appropriate steps were not taken and this issue was not resolved," Presley stated.
