BILOXI, Miss. (AP) - Nearly 11 years after Hurricane Katrina flattened houses and businesses, East Biloxi remains mostly vacant land and members of the City Council and administration have different ideas of what should come next.

The Sun Herald reports (https://bit.ly/29uHivM) the council on Tuesday tabled a resolution to sell three parcels of city-owned land for an affordable tax credit housing development. A workshop is scheduled for July 19 to look at all the issues.

Councilman George Lawrence said this is not the right time to be selling the city property when all the infrastructure in East Biloxi is being replaced and the east end of the road loop is being completed.

Mayor Andrew “FoFo” Gilich says the housing would be for those who work at the casinos in East Biloxi.
