The town of Murphy, North Carolina is seeking to annex 34 additional acres. According to the Cherokee Sentinel Newspaper, it makes the “perfect annexation.”
It is proposing to bring in the property that includes the Lowes Home Center, Sonic restaurant, the BP station (which by the way, is closed), and some public land belonging to Cherokee County and the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA).
According to reported figures, the town expects to gain about $38,753 annually as a result of the new territory. There will be another public hearing on September 13th at 5pm at the city hall. It could become finalized as early as the end of the year.
