Questions, frustrations arise with local annexation issues

When it comes to the annexation issues raised at a Jefferson City Council work session earlier this month, there are a lot of things being said by a lot of different people.

But one thing in the conversation is consistent with the messages of all parties involved — no one is happy with the other side.

City attorney Nathan Nickolaus said the main reason Jefferson City is concerned about annexation issues is because the city’s plans need to match the growth around its borders.

Nickolaus went on to say the city eventually needs to look at bringing in much of the unincorporated developed areas surrounding Jefferson City because it allows the city to control development just beyond its borders.
