City officials in Jackson are seeing dollar signs and it doesn't look like anything short of a lawsuit will stop them from annexing a large area north of the town. Of course, the city always has the option of allowing a vote by residents that are to be annexed. But that is probably too much like taxation with representation.
"After hearing from a parade of speakers opposed to annexation, the Jackson City Council voted on first reading Tuesday to annex 12 square miles of northwest Madison County."Source:
