Start at its boundaries a grow from there, north, south,east and west, thats how a city grows, not by annexing miles of roads to one business, unless all you are concerned about is selling beer and liquor, or just doing a buddy a favor, not much tax base in one store

That is exactly how a city grows. Look at Nicholasville. They annexed all the way up 27 to the Fayette county line, then over time the land between the city and Brannon Crossing starts to fill in and join the city as well.

Selling beer and liquor is big business in Somerset now, especially while every surrounding county stays dry. No use crying about it now, it's a reality that is here to stay.

Using the "R" word is quite offensive to those people who have this classification.

They aren't annexing for 'the sake of selling beer', they're annexing for the sake of taxing it. They want money, which I have no problem with.

That little tax money they will get from beer, will not even come close to the cost of services of the city, this is about taking care of a few people for sake of selling beer, we have not even mentioned that if a store out there sells beer, then there goes all the business from Ohio Navy, to all the local business owners who have been in the city for many years and have earned the right to sell beer. These stores that are in the county have never wanted in the limits before now, so don't tell me its not about the beer, ITS ALL ABOUT THE BEER!

Simmer down, jeez. The city will get the Ohio Navy money either way, here or in an annexed area.

So when did seniority take preference in the business world.Ether compete or fold.That is progress,why would anyone want to come into the city,without benifits.The Ohio navy will find the beer.
I would hope there is some way Science Hill and Eubank would at least sell beer,without going into the city of Somerset,Just a thought.

If Pulaski County was wet, problem would be solved.

Then we could have a beer joint here, a beer joint there, O'my gosh, what a bunch of beer joints.

Then we could have a Police roadblock here, a Police roadblock there, everywhere a Police roadblock, just a bunch of Police roadblocks.

Today, I plan on watching it snow!

when you annex an area then all the properties annexed pay city taxes so all the tax money just don't come from selling alcohol. residential properties along with commercial will have to pay county taxes along with city taxes.

Think back a few years, If Burnside hadn't annexed Lees Ford Dock and showed intentions of taking in the roadways between it and the actual city, up 27, across 914 and west on 80, which then gave Ferguson the idea to take in the new 1247, Somerset would likely never had to consider annexing to the extent that they have now... So if somebody has a problem with Somerset's annexation, maybe they should not point their finger directly at Somerset. Think of what it would be like to have Burnside all along the south and west side and Ferguson east to 80 & 461. Don't you ever think that couldn't have happened! What a mess that would have been.

Ideally, not only will the businesses who pay tax to the city help pay for the increased utility costs, but also once homeowners see the advantages to annexation into the city they too will choose to join.
It is how a city grows.
Who is paying for those 10 Commandments fiasco lawsuits again?
The bigger question is: Who is paying for the absent of the Ten Commandments?
The Commandments prohibit murder. It is illegal to teach that in schools, except it being a man's law;
The Commandments prohibit lying. It is illegal to teach that in schools and give God the credit;
Christ said that there would be false prophets calling evil good and evil good. If a preacher is voting in a way that promotes the sale of alcohol, shame on him, and I doubt that he is leading many to the saving grace of Christ.
It is clearly a fact that money has become America's god. The love of money is at the root of all evil.

True. I use to run around killing people all day long and then I would lie about it when people asked me. Then one day I read the Ten Commandments and realized what I was doing was wrong. Its been almost a year now since I've killed anyone. Thank God for the Ten Commandments.
