JACKSON COUNTY, MS (WLOX) -

Some major changes could be coming to The Shed Barbeque and Blues Joint on Hwy. 57 after its co-owner, Brad Orrison, pleaded guilty to building and flood code violations Tuesday.

Jackson County Judge Larry Wilson told Orrison he has 60 days to present a plan to address the restaurant’s code violations. Orrison tells us he started working on those plans four months ago.

“Based on the landmark status and the notoriety, I think it was the best decision for the county and for The Shed to show that the county and business owners do work together,” said Orrison. “A couple of code violations need to be addressed. The best thing to do is address them.”

Jackson County building official Marcus Catchot said the main concern surrounding the code violations is safety. He said the county is under pressure from MEMA and FEMA because The Shed does not comply with national flood insurance guidelines.

Catchot said after The Shed submits its improvement plans to Wilson, the judge can either approve those plans, give Orrison more time to fix the plans, or shut the landmark establishment down.
