School district votes to sue city of Pascagoula

PASCAGOULA, MS (WLOX) – A court battle is looming, pitting the Pascagoula-Gautier School District against the City of Pascagoula. This is after the city council rejected a request by the school district for a 4 mil tax increase that would have brought in an additional $1.3 million a year. …

…While school board officials and officials with the City of Pascagoula say this is strictly a business decision, nothing personal at all, you do get the feeling that it is just a little bit personal, according to Concannon.

“Did it offend me? Yes, because they’re not supporting the kids. But, that is a prevalent situation right now across all government is to reduce taxes and start hurting people,” said Concannon.
