Residents don’t dispute Wharton annexation proposal during first hearing

Posted: Wednesday, June 12, 2019 10:00 pm

There are hundreds of residents who live in Wharton’s extra territorial jurisdiction (ETJ) and of the 15 who came to a recent public hearing on proposed annexation and a Municipal Service Plan (MSP), only one person spoke to elected officials on the matter.

Based on this and the outcome of a Monday, June 3 public hearing, it appears that those who currently live in Wharton’s ETJ are not opposed to the city annexing their land or the services the city will offer. Unless their land is agriculture exempt, which the one resident who spoke alluded to.
