It isn't rocket science.

It isn't rocket science. Cities annex for the tax revenue. With the financial hardships Wilmington is experiencing, I'm surprised they are not trying to annex every square inch surround the city limits and that might have been the plan had they gotten on with Monkey Junction more smoothly than the way it is going. The bad thing about annexation is that the citizens of the area end up paying taxes that support the city that annexed them but if they actually need anything in their area, it will be years and years before they get it. With the exception of protesting as they are doing and starting now to work towards replacing every member of the city council and the mayor in the next election, there is not a lot the residents can do. Monkey Junction today.....who's next?
