BILOXI and GULFPORT — The Gulfport City Council has voted unanimously to approve a resolution that could put an end to a longstanding annexation dispute with the city of Biloxi.
The property in question consists of about two-and-one-half square miles along the Mississippi 605 corridor north and east of Gulfport’s corporate boundaries.
The Sun Herald reports the resolution says if Biloxi stops the annexation effort that it began on Aug. 13, 2010, Gulfport will stop its bid to annex a portion of that same area, which was filed July 29, 2009.
Biloxi Mayor A.J. Holloway told the newspaper his city has spent a lot of money on the annexation and he isn’t in favor of walking away.
