New petition to change city government circulating in Ocean Springs

Two petitions are now circulating in Ocean Springs to change the current form of city government. The first petition was started by Ocean Springs resident, George Conwill, to change to a city manager form of government. That would give an appointed city manager a large portion of power concerning city business.

Now, Mayor Connie Moran has started her own petition to have a strong mayor form of government, which would give her a vote in city business, something she does not currently have.

Residents we spoke with seem to think neither petition is necessary.
