City encouraging residents to sign ROEs

The City of Biloxi is in the process of preparing public notices to be published for the removal of storm debris from as many as 4,250 parcels of property in areas from the city’s western boundary at DeBuys Road to Lee Street in east Biloxi.

However, while those legally required notices are being prepared, the city is continuing to encourage property owners who have not already done so to complete a Right of Entry form. The forms can be obtained either online (click here) or at the Community Development Department, which is on Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Drive in Biloxi.

The city is trying to remove as much debris as possible before FEMA reimbursement ends, which is currently scheduled for Jan. 15.
