North Carolina stops annexation of Monkey Junction

The State House of Representatives has given final approval to two bills blocking forced annexation in North Carolina. One bill overturns the annexation of Monkey Junction, areas near Southport and others across the state. That's a done deal.

Annexation

The city showed why we do not want them to assume control of our services. Without a clear decision made they flooded Money Junction with Police to make some kind statement. Apparently it takes twice as mant City Police to do the job of the Sheriffs dept. If this is the way they spend money we don't need it. I'm glad at least in this one case the people didn't let polititions run them over. I know citys need to grow but there is a right way to do it. I moved from the city to the county and the only differance I can see is half the taxes.
