OCEAN SPRINGS, MS (WLOX) – A well-known Ocean Springs homeowner now knows where his permit to operate a bed and breakfast stands.The planning commission turned down Scott and Trinity Walker’s application to operate a B&B from their home. But their attorney, Billy Guice, said the planning commission is only there to make recommendations. The final decision is in the hands of the board of aldermen.
The Walkers first filed an application for the permit back in spring of 2016. Their attorney said each time it’s come up for discussion, it’s been tabled. Scott Walker said he was permitted to proceed with renting out the house, while their application was pending.
