Judge rules with city in annexation dispute

BILOXI — The City of Biloxi’s fight to annex more area has cleared a hurdle.

The city wants to annex less than eight square miles of a 163-square mile Harrison County utility district.

The county argued that the law requires annexation of all 163 square miles. But a state judge has now ruled that such a law is unconstitutional.

Biloxi leaders praised the decision as protecting the city’s path of future growth.

  1. Cities should not be able to selectively annex only an area that is income producing.
