The Biloxi City Council has voted to give FEMA trailer residents six more months to find permanent housing.
In a unanimous vote Tuesday, the council decided not to move forward with a plan that would have only given residents a 60-day window to move out of the structures that cannot hold up to hurricane-strength winds.
The decision came after several advocacy groups protested the proposed ordinance at the meeting.
The advocates argued in that in some cases the trailers are the only housing option for residents who lost their homes to Katrina in 2005.
