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.
