Citizen’s Resist Possible Annexation: White’s Gap
A local community rises up to have their voices heard. Tonight the community of White’s Gap is coming together for a public meeting to inform fellow residents about possible annexation to the city of Jacksonville. White’s Gap resident William Allen says there are many residents vowing to resist the possible annexation of their rural town. According to officials, the conversation over annexation has been taking place for more than 6 months. Last year, the Jacksonville City Council moved forward with a draft legislation to permit the enlargement.
