The Huguenard Road annexation was approved last year. The annexation affected 1600 people.
Many of our current City Councilmen have run on a platform that they oppose annexation; let's look at how they voted on this annexation:
The preliminary vote passed 8:0 with Talarico being absent.
The final vote passed 8:0 with Pape being absent.
The upcoming annexation's will be mindlessly approved as well; they always are.
Our City Council considers these annexations voluntary since at least 1 more property then 50% has a waiver stating that they will not oppose annexation signed by the developer. Consider the following:
1. That means as many as 49.9% of properties may not have a waiver.
2. Many people have a waiver that they had no idea was on their property.
3. In every annexation I have heard of a majority of the property owners OPPOSE annexation.
I think we need some new City Councilmen...
