The sitting City Administration does not consider the effect of annexing property at all...other than to feed their ever-growing need for additional tax dollars to spend in willy-nilly fashion.
It's not as if Lowes, Home Depot, and Walmart don't have locations inside city limits in other towns. I seriously doubt a single job will be lost due to them having to pay real estate tax to the City.
Just don't bring up the idea of a City Income Tax...d**n, I just did. Maybe Saffo and Crew won't read this post.
