Annex West Mobile
We are a group of citizens who believe our best choice is to be annexed by the City of Mobile in order to maintain fire protection in our area and regain city of Mobile EMS services:
We believe annexation is our best option as the transfers of services is almost immediate and would be accomplished within the first two weeks of voter approval completed by the end of the month. Annexation would provide the area with the most value for tax dollar spent as other city services would come with being annexed such as garbage and trash pickup along with other services that you probably already pay for by shopping inside the city limits of Mobile and paying sales taxes, but don’t receive because you currently reside out of the city limits. Most importantly you will then gain a voice in city government that you don’t have today even though you pay those taxes .
The city council will create a map of the area. The mayor certifies a copy of the map, and it is filed with the probate judge. Within 10-15 days of filing the probate judge will enter an order for an election not more than 40 days later. The vote is a simple majority of individuals that live in the district in question. If a property owner does not live in the district, they cannot vote.
