City views annexation As necessary for growth by de Walker. Or. City editor governments of All types Are formed not because people like paying taxes or being told what to do but because they Are necessary. People demand Security identity services they done to want to perform themselves and the like. At the same time they want privacy prestige and the right to live where they want with whom they want. If they have enough Money they can and will have their cake and eat it too for one generation at least. The City of Washington has lost population. One of the major reasons for this is that it is not growing physically. For the City to grow and the area to take advantage of its obvious attraction to Industry the City must Annex property. The area lost population because it has no major local Point of interest to More draw or hold people. A growing sustaining competitive Edge City provides an instrument with which to realize the full benefits of Industrial growth. Without it there is inadequate planning and Little organization. Look upon As an invasion of their rights. Many inside the City see it the same Way with one exception Community leaders who live outside the City limits told his reporter that they Are convinced with some regret that annexation is necessary to the City. Their reason for this is unanimous. They feel that for the area to grow and Prosper the City must grow As one of these men put to 4for an area to be progressive it must have a firm foundation in three primary areas monies regulations and leadership to manage the first two. Money must come from a sustaining source and not from programs which Are initiated to cover a crisis. Regulations Are necessary for orderly growth and Protection of human rights. Logic would dictate that the larger the volume of leadership from which to choose the Apt we Are to find a because they know Many of their neighbors Are opposed one explained Quot they be got enough Money to pay for sewer and water and they like things As they Are. All they can see is that the City wants their taxes. Many have already invested Money in Wells and sceptic tanks and done to see what the City has to offer. Some complain continue Ely about City cry official officials within City government express reservations about annexing people who do not want to come into the City and the reasons they give Are similar to those Given by the people who would be annexed. Part of the reason the City has not been aggressive with annexation is that its officials also feel that a Man is entitled to live where he wants and with whom he wants the Annex annexation is something Many people in Mac Woods Rosedale Runyon plus Etc., this Field. I contend that Competition normally yields Progress. At this time until i can have a better solution to our Long Range problems pointed out i would have to go on record As favouring these same leaders however like the one above do not want to be quoted by name even with these reservations however they Are now looking at annexation As a necessity. Mayor a. Thomas Stewart and City manager de Wyatt Are firmly behind a move to Annex. The two men differ in their emphasis on priorities. City councilmen also support annexation. Quot we Are in bad shape because we have not annexed in the past and we must now begin to think that if commented Max Roebuck. Roebuck said Quot we Are losing too much potential and actually running people out of the. City i think forced an Quot negation is definitely in the picture a he concluded. Or. J. H. Roberson equally firm on the Issue stressed the City a preparation. Quot we should provide services so that people want to come in. If we can get City services at Peak performance then we can expect annexation to be More attractive we have moved away from this in the past but i feel we should Start changeling some of our Money Back into this and away from Washington As a Federal City. We have to Start doing More for ourselves a Roberson said. Quot Washington has nor future without annexation a Tommy Cox commented. Quot the City has As the an to grow it can to stand still. The Only Way it can grow is to Annex Quot he said. Jesse Spruill emphasized the need for additional leadership. Quot we need the Quality of men living outside the City in government to help out Quot he said. Spruill said he was Uncertain about the tax advantages seen by the City primary advantages of negation Are As follows a to show an increased population in the next census As opposed to the last population draft / a to acquire More per capita based state Loans and or Grants these would or could include Powell Bill Money for roads specific business taxes a a Nixon a proposed Revenue sharing plan and a benefits from a sales tax if passed it a to raise real property valuation base increasing the bonding capacity. A to acquire More taxable commercial Industrial and residential Sites 7&Quot,.�?T2�=to acquire More land for Middle class Home building especially for the Young a to make City boundaries coincide More closely with areas provided direct or direct service by the City such As fire Rescue Library services non profit organizations sewer and water recreation Etc. A to attain a better level of Economy of scale i.e., the City operation at its present financial level would support an additional 1500 people without any major change except in possible sewer and water operation a most importantly to enhance image of the City As a place of growth under Forward looking leadership and to the same time decrease political Harg ining Power the problem the City faces is How it can afford to Annex and How it can be done efficiently and with Benefit to those an hexed. These benefits admittedly Small on Arr immediate a Sis to those with higher in comes would it is hoped help overcome Many of the reservations held by the annexed two Type there Are two types of annexation forced and voluntary for voluntary annexation a rarely used method 100 per cent of the people in an area must agree Forrect annexation i the usual route the City has a authority the Force Annex any a True gear on of the a achievement of the red Ross can never be taken for it is an organization whose value to the Community is largely one of preventive action through the red Cross we americans Supply approximately half of the blood needs of our nation s a hospitals.
