House Bill 414
149th General Assembly (2017 - 2018)
The General Assembly has ended, the current status is the final status.
AN ACT TO AMEND THE CHARTER OF THE TOWN OF BLADES RELATING TO ANNEXATION.
This bill amends the Charter of the Town of Blades to allow annexation without a referendum only if the property to be annexed requests the annexation. Also, if a petition of over 10% of eligible voters requesting a referendum is submitted with 30 days of Council approval, then a referendum must be held. The cost of a referendum when a contiguous property owner desires to come into Blades to obtain their utilities and services seems unnecessary.
