City files action to recover rent money

The City of Biloxi today took steps in Harrison County Chancery Court to protect its right to $606,350.52 in rent paid into a state holding fund by the Golden Nugget Casino Resort.

The state Legislature last year erroneously transferred the city’s money into the state general fund and failed to return the money during the recently concluded legislative session.

“We’re confident that the right thing will be done,” Mayor Andrew “FoFo” Gilich, “but we also most make sure our claim to this money remains active.”
