Council to decide fate of proposed MGM Park this morning

The Biloxi City Council, in a special meeting this morning at 10:30, is expected to decide six measures involving the proposed MGM Park at Beau Rivage, including a resolution to borrow $21 million to construct the proposed downtown stadium and entertainment venue.

A vote planned for last week was postponed because Councilmember Felix Gines was out of town, serving with the National Guard.

The stadium issue has been intermittently discussed and negotiated for months.
