The Biloxi City Council will not vote today on an ordinance requiring the Mississippi state flag to fly outside city buildings. The council decided to table the vote until it can hear an opinion from the Attorney General.

For now, the controversial flag will continue to not fly outside city buildings. Mayor Andrew "FoFo" Gilich ordered the flag down April 24, saying he only wanted to see the American flag flown outside city buildings.

At the council's May 9 meeting, Councilman Robert Demming proposed an ordinance to fly the state flag. During that same meeting, the council approved a motion to ask the state legislature and governor to consider changing the controversial flag.
