LAUREL, MS (WDAM) - The City of Laurel may be increasing in numbers pretty soon if all goes as planned. Laurel is considering annexing the Pendorff community.
Laurel's Mayor Johnny Magee said residents in that area would receive all of the city services including fire, police, sewer, and garbage.
Magee said "I believe there is useful property in Pendorff. I believe there is vacant property that we can use for industrial purposes, for economic development purposes , and there are residents there that we can take in and be a part of the city."
The council has ordered a study be done in that area to see if annexation is needed. The study is expected to be completed in about three weeks.
