Council has full agenda, plenty of issues on Tuesday

The Biloxi City Council faces an agenda of nearly four dozen measures when it meets Tuesday afternoon, including a report on the city’s financial condition and several measures involving residential and commercial zoning.

The council’s meeting begins at 1:30 Tuesday afternoon at City Hall and is open to the public.

The meeting will begin with a report from City Comptroller Scott McElroy regarding city finances, and a voter-ID briefing from the Secretary of State’s office. Also at the outset of the meeting, a public hearing involving a neighborhood dispute over a proposed six-foot privacy fence is also planned.

The agenda includes requests for city tax breaks from two businesses — Kress Live, the downtown concert venue scheduled to open in July, and The Reef, a front beach restaurant.

With a nod to the approaching hurricane season, the City Council will also consider approving debris removal contracts, so the agreements will be in place should a storm threaten.

Several measures  involve appointments to city advisory boards, and revisions to contracts for ongoing infrastructure and other projects.
