Council to Consider Expansion of City's Boundaries

From: City of Biloxi    Vincent Creel   Filed 8/3/07 GCN

The Biloxi City Council, in one of its rare post-Katrina nighttime meetings on Tuesday, will be asked to approve Mayor A.J. Holloway’s request to expand the city’s northeastern boundaries by 12-square miles and approve the platting of 82 new single-family lots in a proposed subdivision off Atkinson Road in west Biloxi.

The council is meeting Tuesday at 6 p.m. to satisfy state requirements for a nighttime hearing as part of the municipal budget process. Those attending the City Hall meeting will be given a chance to comment on the proposed $210 million budget, which is expected to be finalized in a couple of weeks.

The council also will discuss the budget during a 3 p.m. workshop Tuesday at City Hall.
