Bay St. Louis City council voted Tuesday night to have electical power shut off to the Stennis Technology Park office building, and force its tenants to vacate it -- today.

The action came at the insistence of Council President James C. Thriffiley III, who said the city cannot allow occupancy of a building without proper water and sewer facilities.

He also urged city Attorney Donald J. Rafferty to file city citations against the building's owners. Rafferty said federal Corps of Engineers officials and the Environmental Protection Agency are threatening 'severe sanctions' against the development's owners.

He also said the city has ordered increased patrols in the development area -- and even hired a private detective to monitor the area south of the I-10, Highway 603 interchange, to make sure no unauthorized work continues.
