Bellevue short 250 signatures for incorporation petition

LAMAR COUNTY, MS (WDAM) -

The Citizens of Bellevue Executive Committee announced that they are within 250 signatures of the total needed to file the petition for the incorporation of the City of Bellevue. 

The proposed Mayor of Bellevue, John Adcock, issued the following statement regarding the announcement:

"We are confident that there are more than 250 registered voters who desire to sign but have not yet made their way to petition in order to actually do so. Over the past few weeks, it has become our paramount objective to make the collection process as convenient as possible," Adcock said. 

Adcock also said that time was of the essence due to the City of Hattiesburg filing their annexation suit, which directly conflicts with the incorporation. 

"This is an intentional attempt o thwart our efforts as a community," Adcock said. To combat this linear annexation, we need the necessary signatures as soon as possible." 

Those interested in helping collect signatures can contact The Citizens of Bellevue Executive Committee at 601-310-5494.
