Bill summary

Provides for the following, applicable to the Town of Leland only.

Suspends the Town of Leland's authority to annex territory under Article 4A, GS Chapter 160A, until July 1, 2024.

Amends GS 160A-31 to require a petition by property owners to a governing board to annex any territory contiguous to the municipality's boundaries for which all property owners in the area have signed the petition, to also include a statement that each owner's petition for annexation is not based upon any representation by the municipality that a public enterprise service available outside the corporate limits of that municipality would be withheld from the owner's property without the petition for annexation. Effective June 30, 2024, and applies to petitions received on or after June 30, 2022.

Removes the Town of Leland from the exclusion of the provisions of GS 160A-58.1(b)(5), which set criteria for noncontiguous areas proposed for annexation by a city by petition of the area's property owners to include that the area within the proposed satellite corporate limits, when added to the area within all other satellite corporate limits, does not exceed 10% of the area within the primary corporate limits of the annexing city. Also amends the requirements of a petition for annexation by a city under the statute to include a statement from each owner that the owner's petition for annexation is not based upon any representation by the municipality that a public enterprise service available outside the corporate limits of that municipality would be withheld from the owner's property without the petition for annexation. Effective June 30, 2024, and applies to petitions for annexation approved by a municipality on or after that date.
