Municipal and County Appeals

Mississippi Code Section 11-51-75 sets out the procedure for appealing the order of a board of supervisors or city counsel. The appeal must normally be filed within 10 days from the date the official action was taken.

The appeal of a county or city resolution or ordinance is normally initiated by filing a bill of exceptions. Because the failure to timely, and the failure to properly file, your bill of exceptions can adversely impact the chances of a successful appeal, it is important to retain an experienced lawyer to assist you through the process.
