or the life of us, we can’t understand why some people are opposed to annexation by the city of Washington. What is being proposed now is a reasonable plan. It is heartening that the council has decided to move ahead on the south and east areas proposed for annexation. The west plan, which contains several proposals, is being given additional consideration.

The planning and zoning commission has spent more than a year or two in studying annexation. The plan at this point is justified — it’s no land grab. The city has the ability to provide all municipal services to the areas in the plan. In the long run, the people in the areas to be annexed will save money with city services than what they are paying now. Their property owners insurance should be less because of a better fire rating the city has.
