Citizen Right to be Annexed
Mr. Hamilton has participated with other attorney's to assist citizen's in their right to be annexed. Citizens have the right to be annexed . As Judge Learned Hand is reputed to have said, "the price of civilization is taxes," here citizens sought the benefit of city living. These citizens sought to send their children to a city school located just blocks from their homes. The problem, they were located in a county next door to the city and the resident county did not desire the city to extend into their immediately adjacent county. Pure politics because of Tennessee's Comprehensive Growth Plan Act.
In this case the parents who voted to be annexed lived within near walking distance to the available schools, but the children were being forced to ride a bus about 30 minutes one way.
