City Annexation

I was just reading several letters about parts of Wilmington that have been annexed and not received all the vaunted city services. Maybe the foes of annexation need to take a new path and have the legislature force the cities to provide all the services including sidewalks before they can tax. It is amazing that they can't provide basic services or balance their budget but can build convention centers and nown possibly a baseball stadium. Sometimes my memory escapes me...how many city council members are in the commercial, or residential real estate business or are financed by the homebuilders association? I think it is great that a number of property owners have contacted the city about selling their land at a reduced price. That is great! Let Mandalay have the deal so the property is taxable.Why would the city want to buy the land itself and make it non taxable? Food for thought.
