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.
