WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — The Board of Elections wants to know what property owners in Monkey Junction think of annexation. New Hanover County sent out letters Thursday asking property owners if they want to deny Wilmington’s annexation of Monkey Junction.
The petition is strict in nature, requiring majority ownership or official authorized signatures only. The document must be notorized if anyone who is not listed as the owner signs the petition.
Sixty percent of property owners must return the petition in order to deny annexation.
The letters should start arriving at properties today. Property owners have until November 29 to fill out the petition and send it back to the Board of Elections.
