Tupelo annexation plan approved

By NEMS Daily Journal

TUPELO – A chancery judge has approved Tupelo’s annexation plans, attorneys for the city said tonight.
Chancery Judge Edward Prisock approved almost all of Tupelo’s proposal, which called for the annexation of 16.15 square miles and about 2,800 people.
Earlier this year, Prisock presided over a 22-day trial in which Tupelo presented its case and opponents, including Lee County, the city of Saltillo and the town of Plantersville, offered their objections.
Spokesmen for the opponents were unavailable for comment on whether they would appeal to the state Supreme Court.
