Just recently was annexed into Kingsport, and they didn't ask me before-hand. Actually, there are pro's and con's. For a medium priced house the extra taxes are mostly offset in the garbage and trash collection and the lower water bill. If there are school age children then this is also a plus for many. I suppose those with the higher priced houses may feel a little more squeezed, but if they can afford the house what's a few more tax dollars.

It takes business away from the existing trash pickup companies.
