LAUREL, MS (WDAM) - The Laurel City Council is still at odds about giving property to the county to build a new DHS building.

Council members said they are all in favor of DHS staying in Laurel.

Councilmen George Carmichael and Manuel Jones said they are not willing to give the property away during these tough times.

Jones said for years the county has been ripping off people who live inside the city limits.
