On behalf of the Board of Aldermen of the City of Batesville, it is my pleasure to welcome you to the City of Batesville, Mississippi. Located in the northwestern portion of Mississippi, the City of Batesville is made up of diverse terrains, communities, and industries offering unlimited opportunities. This unique topography allows Panola County and the City to maintain harmony between agriculture, Industry and urban economic growth.

We are very proud of our City! We have a lot to offer, from our city services, our beautiful parks, our recreational walking trail located at Trussell Park and an excellent academic system. We have all of this and a strong industrial base, health care facilities, thriving businesses and numerous civic organizations offer advance services to individuals rooted in the City of Batesville and attract travelers in search of a vibrant and healthy community.

The City of Batesville has special features you would expect in a much larger community with our small town charm, with a sense of community that provides for safe neighborhoods.

We are very fortunate to have such caring citizens within our community which makes Batesville a “one of a kind” within the Panola County area.

Today we welcome you to the City of Batesville and hope that you visit with us is enjoyable and that you will visit our great City again.
