Clock ticking on Monkey Junction annexation ruling appeal


WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- Folks in Monkey Junction have only a couple more weeks to file an appeal or be annexed into the City of Wilmington. The city said today a judge earlier this month granted a motion supporting City Council's 2009 decision to annex of a portion of Monkey Junction.

The annexation was supposed to take effect in June, but has been delayed because of legal challenges. An attorney for the plaintiffs says an appeal is likely. If it's not filed by the end of the month, the annexation goes into effect August 31.
