City’s annexation plan upheld by Supreme Court

TUPELO — The city of Tupelo’s plan to expand its borders has been upheld by the Mississippi Supreme Court.

The Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal reports the 16-square-mile annexation would add approximately 2,500 residents to the city.

Special Chancellor Edward Prisock approved the city’s annexation plan Dec. 17, 2010, but the decision was appealed by Lee County, the Belden Fire Protection District, the Palmetto-Old Union Fire Protection District, the Unity Fire Protection District and the City of Saltillo.

Writing for the majority, Justice Randy Pierce said in Thursday’s ruling the state’s high court agreed with Prisock.
