WAVELAND, MS (WLOX) - Waveland residents living in MEMA cottages will have until next week before knowing whether the cottages will become permanent in the city.
Friday night (February 6th), the board of alderman and mayor met in a closed door executive session. The session comes on the heels of a lawsuit against the city by some residents living in the cottages.
After the session, leaders approved a motion for MEMA to be "sensitive" to those moving out of cottages and into homes. Leaders, however, did not define "sensitive."
They also passed a motion that could allow cottages outside of velocity zones to become permanent, pending MEMA approval. Again, the details of that memorandum were not released.
City leaders say they didn't want to release any details before meeting with MEMA and the judge. The attorney for the plaintiffs say they expect to get a draft of the memorandum Monday morning.
They will head to court this week.
