Local Business Wants to Stop Construction on Fayard Street

As construction on Fayard Street by the IP Casino in Biloxi continues, one local business wants to see it stop.
Thuy Pawn Shop is a 24 hour business that sits just across from the IP Casino. Wayne Hengen, the lawyer representing the pawn shop, spoke to the Biloxi City Council today about stopping the construction of Fayard Street. He says it would eliminate all of their parking and ultimately close down the business.
The Council voted 5 to 2 to reject that motion and continue on with road improvements.
Mike Cavanaugh, representing the IP Casino, says the construction is needed.
Hengen says since the City Council turned down his plea, his client will have to decide whether or not they want to appeal to the Circuit Clerk.
