at 1:30 the Court will hear the case the annexation case of In the Matter of the Enlargement and Extension of the Town of Terry, Greg Wilson v. Town of Terry.
In 2012, Terry decided it needed to expand its boundaries. Terry identified five areas for expansion (south, east, west, northeast, and northwest). The chancellor, after a two-day trial, awarded Terry the east and west areas. Persons objecting to the annexation (Greg Wilson, David McGuffee, Joyce Wallace, Kevin Bryant, and Arthur Harvey) appealed. They argue that “Terry was unable to show, under the court-recognized indicators of reasonableness, that it was reasonable for Terry to expand its boundaries whatsoever. Terry displayed both poor past performance to its most recently annexed citizens brought in in 2009 and a misunderstanding of how it would or could move forward serving any new citizens post annexation.” Terry, of course, disagrees.
Watch the argument here.
