Cottonwood City Council Q&A Round 4: Bill Tinnin

Cottonwood City Council Q&A Round 4: Doug Hulse

The city should remain neutral taking no action on a proposed annexation until approached by property owners of the areas that might desire annexation. Annexation is a lengthy, very public, and somewhat complicated legal process that must be initiated by the property owners desiring annexation. It cannot happen “in the dark of the night.”
