HORN LAKE — The Mississippi Supreme Court has upheld a DeSoto County judge’s ruling that denied Horn Lake’s petition to annex 9.1 square miles of land to its west.

The Supreme Court March 10 also upheld Chancellor Percy Lynchard’s decision denying a request from the town of Walls to annex about four square miles to its north and west — most of which Horn Lake also wanted.

Lynchard ruled in 2009 that neither proposed annexation was reasonable.

Lynchard said neither city showed it could adequately provide public services in the areas they wanted to annex. He said both cities had struggled to provide services in previously annexed areas.
