The City of Wilmington lied repeatedly about providing services i.e. water and sewer during past annexations. Ask the folks who were annexed in 1995 & 1998 who live along Wrightville Avenue, or off of Masonboro Sound Road. Still don't have it...though CFPUA is working on it now.
The same probably would have been the case in Monkey Junction...forcible taxation to pay for services that weren't coming.
