GLUCKSTADT, MS (WLBT) - A judge has ruled that the Gluckstadt community in Madison County can become a city and will get nearly all the land its leaders had asked for.

Chancery Judge James Walker ruled today that an area wanted by both Gluckstadt and Canton, will go to Gluckstadt.

It contains two Mac Haik (Hike) car dealerships, a Callaway’s Yard and Garden Center, and several other new businesses under construction.

Canton will get just two of the five areas it was fighting to annex.

The city has ten days to appeal the judge’s ruling.
