Monkey Junction residents may not have to pay city taxes after all. State Senator Julia Boseman has proposed an annexation moratorium for New Hanover County. The city of Wilmington wants to annex hundreds of acres in Monkey Junction, which would significantly raise the tax bill for those residents. Senator Boseman said the annexation attempt comes at a bad time. "Now with the economy the way it is, the folks that live out there are having a hard enough time staying in their homes, and now their taxes are going to almost double," Boseman said. If passed, the moratorium would protect that area from annexation until June 30, 2010.
