Annexation fails to get two-thirds majority
Wednesday, November 7, 2012
Jefferson City failed to get the needed vote Tuesday to annex a new area into the city’s 4th Ward.
The Meadows by the Club annexation proposal received 64.96 percent in favor, falling just short of the needed 67 percent to pass. Within the annexation area, 12 voted in favor and nine voted against.
Because the issue failed to pass by a simple majority in both the city and the annexation area in August, a second vote was taken Tuesday. In order to pass, the two areas combined needed to have a two-thirds majority.
