Chancellor to rule soon on county’s bid to leave waterway district
Published: August 28,2012
PURVIS — A specially appointed chancellor said he would make a ruling within the next few days on whether Lamar County has a state-given right to leave the Pat Harrison Waterway District.
The Hattiesburg American reports Chancellor Hollis McGehee was asked yesterday to decide on Lamar County’s request for a partial summary judgment.
The county has argued that its responsibilities to the district ended on Sept. 6, 2011, when it sent a letter to Pat Harrison officials, notifying them that the county was leaving the district, meaning that it would not pay about $390,000 in membership dues for fiscal year 2011-12.
The district responded by filing a petition in May in Forrest County Chancery Court, demanding that the county pay its annual membership fee.
