City to advertise final areas for debris removal

This week, the city will be publishing notices to inform owners of property from DeBuys Road in west Biloxi to Oak Street in east Biloxi that the city may need to remove storm debris from their property.

The eight-page notice, which will be published Thursday in the Sun Herald and Friday in The Bay Press, will list owners of record of more than 4,200 individual parcels of property, along with addresses and parcel numbers in an effort to allow property owners a chance to appeal the city’s decision to enter their property.

A public hearing for property owners to ask questions about the process – or to appeal the city’s intentions – will be conducted Friday, Dec. 30 at 1:30 p.m. at City Hall.

“We’ve made significant progress on our debris removal efforts,” Mayor A.J. Holloway said, “and this last batch of public notices will mean that we will have advertised our intentions for virtually all areas of our city.

“Property owners who have not done so as yet are encouraged to visit the Community Development Department and complete a right-of-entry agreement to help expedite this process.”
