City Council meets twice on Tuesday

The Biloxi City Council has called a special meeting for Tuesday at 4:30 p.m. to discuss issues involving infrastructure work in east Biloxi, and the council will have its regularly scheduled meeting at 6 p.m. Both meetings will be at City Hall and are open to the public.

The 4:30 meeting will be in an informational workshop setting, meaning no policy votes will be conducted. Mayor Andrew “FoFo” Gilich and councilmembers will discuss progress and challenges with the city’s infrastructure work north of the CSX railway in east Biloxi, as well as progress on the plans to begin infrastructure work south of the CSX railway in east Biloxi.

The 6 p.m. meeting will include the first of two readings of the proposed short-term rental ordinance, which allows short-term rentals in east Biloxi but restricts their establishment in west Biloxi. Councilmembers will vote on the proposed ordinance at a subsequent meeting. Also on the agenda for Tuesday evening: Cedar Lake sewer improvements, repairs to the Popp’s Ferry bridge fender system and other issues.
