Durham says it won't annex a new development. Legislators set to force them to do so.
First they passed a law that forbids municipalities from annexing communities against their wishes. Now they're planning to pass a law to force municipalities to annex communities even when the municipality doesn't want to. Well reported by IndyWeek.
The article mentions that Cal Cunningham is an attorney working to force Durham to move forward with the annexation.
All of this is wrapped up in the fight over Jordan Lake watershed development, as well as the Republican agenda to take more control over the actions of local governments.
Go ahead and break out the zip-tie handcuffs.
Durham must refuse to comply with the demands of our illegitimate legislature.
