Darin suggested that we make a

Mayor Bill Green of
Garden is a possible ally
for more funding.
Macintosh reported on city annexation plans and rules.
The city can annex based on: 1) petitions of residents, 2) based
on utility extension agreements, 3) based on the NC Law related to
standards and services. He showed a map of all areas that have signed
extension agreements. The
standards and services method is a lengthy process.
has no eminent plans for annexing anything in SEGC.
Properties that have failing water/septic systems can petition
the city to extend water and/or sewer.
It is not a requirement for the city to extend water/sewer to all
properties within an annexation area.
Homeowners would be notified of the options if the city decided
to annex an area. Satellite
annexation petitions obligate the city to provide certain services but
not water and sewer.
would like to annex land inside the urban loop before going to the area
outside the loop. City
initiated annexations must be contiguous.
This is a complicated set of rules and is not easily summarized
by the presenter (or the minute taker!).
