Annetta Mayor Bruce Pinckard has called a special meeting for Thursday, Jan. 3 in order to discuss the possible annexation requested by more than 500 Deer Creek Waterworks customers. At a recent meeting, the motion to discuss the issue by the city council died for lack of a second.
Mayor Pinckard's statement is as follows:
To the Citizens of Annetta, Town Council and Community at large:
A Mayor’s duties as defined by the Local Government code in the Texas Statutes and further discussed and reviewed during the December 20 council meeting include “giving the council any information, and shall recommend to the governing body any measure, that relates to improving the finances, police, health, security, cleanliness, comfort, ornament, or good government of the municipality.”
For this reason, I have chosen to call a Special Meeting on Thursday at 7:00 pm to discuss further the request put forth by over 500 customers of the Deer Creek Water Works, which is owned by the Town of Annetta, for annexation into the city. This is most obviously an issue of Good Government. Much information exists and needs to be discussed in order to make a thoughtful, informed and transparent decision whether to move forward with the public hearings and give both citizens and petitioners the right to be heard. The issue also may affect the Town’s finances, health, security and comfort. It is a reasonable issue to be heard for all the above reasons.
