House Bill 497 - Annexation Moratorium

This is why the city is trying to strong arm annexation: GENERAL ASSEMBLY OF NORTH CAROLINA SESSION 2009 H 1 HOUSE BILL 497 Short Title: Annexation - Moratorium. (Public) Sponsors: Representatives Goforth, Brown, Dollar, Steen (Primary Sponsors); Allred, Avila, Blackwood, Blust, Brubaker, Cleveland, Coates, Current, England, Faison, Folwell, Guice, Hilton, Hurley, Jones, Justice, Justus, Langdon, Lewis, McComas, McCormick, Moore, Randleman, Rhyne, Sager, Starnes, and Tillis. Referred to: Rules, Calendar, and Operations of the House. March 9, 2009 *H497-v-1* 1 A BILL TO BE ENTITLED 2 AN ACT TO ADOPT A MORATORIUM ON INVOLUNTARY ANNEXATIONS, AS 3 ENDORSED BY THE JOINT LEGISLATIVE STUDY COMMISSION ON MUNICIPAL 4 ANNEXATION. 5 The General Assembly of North Carolina enacts: 6 SECTION 1. G.S. 160A-37(f) reads as rewritten: 7 "(f) Effect of Annexation Ordinance. – No annexation ordinance may take effect until a 8 vote of the people affected by the proposed annexation has been conducted by the appropriate 9 board of elections, and the results certified indicate that more than fifty percent (50%) of the 10 voters approve the annexation. Please contact your local legislature and fully support this bill. There is no way that it can get passed fast enough, but it seems that if it is on the table, then cities could not actively pursue annexation, but this council has shown they care NOTHING about what the citizens think.
