Jackson residents prepare to speakout on rate hike

Good Thursday morning from MSNewsNow's Brandon Artiles!

We are starting the day at 76 degrees and it's looking like another sunny, hot day ahead. Meteorologist Michael Haynes will let us know all about the weather in his First Alert Forecast.

Happening today, Jackson residents will have the opportunity to voice their concerns about a rate hike that will significantly impact their water and sewer bills immediately.  The hikes are a part of Mayor Lumumba's budget proposal, and Jewell Hillery will preview tonight's meeting live on the AM Report. 

Plus, two more Dollar General stores are targeted by armed robbers in the Capital City. We'll show you surveillance images of the robbery in progress at the top of the hour.

And, with the chemical weapons crisis looming in Syria, President Obama and congressional leaders come closer to a decision on intervention in the civil war.

All those stories and much more are headed your way.

Please join us from 5 to 7 and for more Mississippi News Now we're always on Fox 40 from 7 to 9.

Have a great Friday eve!
