City Council is now proposing repeal the ordinances annexing Halteman Village I as well as Brewington Woods. These annexation efforts have gone through a considerable legal process costing the City maybe hundreds of thousands of dollars. The most recent ruling at the appelate court level was favorable to the City’s efforts and now the City Coucnil is going to repeal the City’s authority to annex these areas. This will cause the city to lose the potential for 10’s of millions of dollars in assessed taxable value equating to hundreds of thousands of dollars of lost potential future tax revenues.
