Quotes from the article:

"I think it's a good thing," said Councilman Dan Darnell in a phone interview on Friday. "We're got a sewer line in and some infrastructure. I agree that we need to take a look at annexation. It just makes a lot of fiscal sense. I think there's a real advantage to coming into the city."

"Many of the businesses use city services and should be brought into the city's tax base."

Are they trying to say that they are providing water and sewer to those businesses for free? I doubt it. Using their logic, everyone who is hooked up the Farmington Electric should be part of the city.

On thing is for sure, if landowners want more government telling them what they can and cannot do with their own private property, then they should certainly support annexation.

Looks like theyre trying to make up the 4.4 million dollar shortfall miscalculated by that sound financial manager Rob Mayes. Hell they financed Tommys in laws land and approved infrastructure for it. I wonder whos friend in the city will benefit from this. It sure aint the taxpayers.
