Tupelo to annex 2,800 people
Published: November 23,2010
TUPELO — A chancery judge has approved Tupelo’s annexation plans.
Attorneys for the city tell The Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal that Chancery Judge Edward Prisock approved on Monday almost all of Tupelo’s proposal, which called for the annexation of just over 16 square miles and about 2,800 people.
Earlier this year, Prisock presided over a 22-day trial in which Tupelo presented its case and opponents, including Lee County, the city of Saltillo and the town of Plantersville, offered their objections.
The newspaper reports that spokesmen for the opponents were unavailable for comment on whether they would appeal to the state Supreme Court.
