Decatur commissioners vote YES on annexation

MANA's reaction later... for now, Patch has a meeting summary.

Commissioner Boykin recused himself from the discussion or vote on the A.3 annexation zone (the North Decatur Rd./Clairmont Road intersection), which includes his Bicycle South store. On zone B.3 (Suburban Plaza area), he voted against annexation based on feelings of discomfort with the proposal once the referendum option was dismissed by city planners.

Several unincorporated DeKalb residents, including some who are being annexed against their wishes, spoke against the proposal; so did several commercial land owners and shop keepers in the affected area.

No one spoke in favor of the annexation plan.
