Forced annexation

I agree with you the mayor and other council members are to be applauded. Allowing those in the annexation area to vote on being annexed is the right thing to do. In Wilmington all they are concerned about is gaining as much money as possible from the collection of taxes. New Hanover county residents gain nothing when they are annexed into the city limits except higher taxes. The services provide by the county are far better than anything the City of Wilmington offers. I understand everyone is looking for ways to combat the current economic conditions but forced annexations is not the answer. Hopefully other cities will pay attention to this great example.
