BILOXI, MS (WLOX) - Harrison County’s troubled skate park property could be changing hands soon.

On Monday the Harrison County Board of Supervisors passed a resolution to explore donating the skate park back to the Biloxi School District. The property used to be owned by the school district before the county brought a skate park to the location in the late 1990s.

This development comes after the latest tenant to occupy the property was evicted by the county in December for not paying bills.

According to the resolution, if Biloxi schools acquired the facility and then sold it, the district would be required to reimburse the county for improvements done over the years.

Officials with the Biloxi School District were not available for comment.
