Biloxi City Council to Again Discuss Annexation Issues in Rare Monday Meeting
From: City of Biloxi   Vincent Creel   Filed 11/16/07  GCN

The Biloxi City Council, in a rare Monday meeting, will face an agenda of 39 measures, including a third re-visiting of the issue on whether to expand the cityís northern boundaries by 12.2-square miles.

The council is meeting on Monday afternoon at 1:30 because several council members will be out of town Tuesday, their regular meeting day.

The ordinance to re-consider annexation, proposed by Councilman Mike Fitzpatrick, would reverse the councilís August vote to proceed with the annexation, and could possibly negate a 5-2 vote several weeks ago to ask the state Public Service Commission for permission to provide municipal water and sewer service to a large portion of the area.

Also on the agenda: a request for variances involving a proposed seven-story, 142-room Hilton Garden Inn at 1708 Beach Blvd.; a measure involving an RV park on West Oaklawn Road; and consideration of a conditional use and variances that would allow a self-service gas station and convenience store to locate south of U.S. 90 at Veterans Avenue.
