Annexation to a City Government

Introduction

"Annexation to a city" means expanding the city's boundaries to include more territory. Annexation results in extending city services, city regulation, city voting privileges, and city taxing authority to the annexed territory. “Territory” is the term generally used to describe land in cities, while “area” generally refers to the land in boroughs.
