Annexation to a Borough Government


"Annexation to a borough" means to add territory to the boundaries of a borough government's authority. Annexation results in the extension of borough services, regulation, voting privileges, and taxing authority to the annexed area. There are six methods available for borough annexation. In most cases, the area to be annexed must be next to the boundaries of the annexing borough. State law requires certain standards and procedures be followed for annexation.
