Annexation regulations on the table

Lawmakers discussed reforms to annexation laws in our state on Thursday. So far, a house judiciary committee has ruled against allowing homeowners to vote on whether they want to be annexed, something anti-annexation activists asked for. The issue arose in our area recently, when Wilmington City Council forcibly annexed part of the Monkey Junction area. The committee is still considering other types of annexation reforms, that members hope will reduce complaints from people being annexed, including putting a deadline on when city services have to be provided to annexed areas. Whatever is decided, it appears the Monkey Junction annexation will stand, because it's already been approved.
