Coast city to appeal judge’s decision on proposed annexation
Published: May 16,2012
PASS CHRISTIAN — The city of Pass Christian plans to appeal a judge’s decision denying the city’s request to annex 5.4 square miles in Harrison County. That’s according to a court notice the city has filed.
The Sun Herald reports the city will appeal to the state Supreme Court the ruling specially appointed Chancellor Hollis McGehee entered May 4, after hearing testimony in a March trial.
While the city argued that its sales and property tax revenue is sufficient to provide services in the proposed annexed area, Harrison County countered that Pass Christian has lost population since Hurricane Katrina, as has the Pineville-Cuevas area the city wants to annex.
The county also said about 67 percent of the land in the city sits vacant.
