Water users want annexation, representation

(Continued)

PARKER COUNTY — Going forward

Thompson said they are currently focusing on the first of the two petitions needed. They hope to present enough signatures at the next Annetta South city council meeting to be released from the town’s ETJ claim, something the council has verbally supported.   

“I personally have been involved with legal actions [concerning the Deer Creek system] for several years,” Annetta South Mayor Pro Tem William Gordon said. “I’ve told this Parker County citizens’ group that they should petition to become residents of Annetta when Annetta purchased the system from Willow Park. I told them I would work to support their efforts.”

They are attempting to be annexed in time to field candidates for the May election, according to Thompson.

An Annetta city council workshop has also been scheduled for Tuesday at 7 p.m.
