Annexation proceeds despite protests

"In spite of petitions, pleas and a standing room only crowd, most vehemently opposed to the plan, the Rogersville Board of Mayor and Aldermen voted Tuesday to annex approximately 526 acres of territory west of the current city limits.
The annexation ordinance and plan of services must be approved at two more BMA meetings, with a public hearing to be held in conjunction with the October 10 meeting. In anticipation of an even larger crowd, the October meeting and public hearing will be held at the Rogersville City School."
