Mayor Sandy Lucy last week expressed  her disappointment that the city council gave a death sentence to a proposed annexation plan that was being prepared. She called it “politics at its worst.”

Many questions have arisen since the council voted 6-2 to kill the plan. The timing is a question. Why did Councilman Tim Brinker  bring it up at his last meeting as a council member? Why did he call other council members before the meeting and ask for their support? What was the urgency to kill the proposal at that meeting? Was the Sunshine Law violated in the secret process to kill the plan? Annexation was not on the agenda for that meeting. Yet several people who have property next to the city knew Brinker was going to bring up annexation and were there to cheer him on.
