The vote to override veto on Hattiesburg's sewer rate hike never came to pass Monday.

A medical emergency that delayed the beginning of a special meeting called by the City Council allowed for the arrival of Ward 2 Councilwoman Deborah Delgado. And Delgado's arrival made moot the second of two agenda items, which asked for a vote by Council on a resolution to override a veto of an amended ordinance that would have raised sewer rates to pay for the creation and operation of mandated wastewater treatment plant.

Hattiesburg City Council appears poised to support a request today by Mayor Johnny DuPree to bring a 1 percent sales tax referendum before city residents for a vote, which eventually would allow a sales tax increase that would bring a conservatively estimated $10 million annually to city coffers. The revenue could be used to pay toward the creation of and operation of a mandated wastewater treatment system, thereby mitigating the rate of any sewer hike, but funds also would be used for other infrastructure costs that the city's general fund can't be stretched to cover.

After a nearly two-week search, a 37-year-old Hattiesburg woman wanted in the death of an elderly man was arrested Wednesday just outside Hattiesburg city limits in Lamar County. Carrie Lea Reynolds was booked into Forrest County Jail on a second-degree murder charge. Traxler said tips received through Metro Crime Stoppers helped lead to Reynolds' capture.
