Oakboro approves new annexation town limit agreement with Red Cross

Published 3:38 pm Tuesday, September 20, 2022

At Monday’s meeting of the Oakboro Town Council, commissioners approved a new annexation agreement which establishes a border between the two municipalities.

The new border meets at the crossroads of N.C. Highway 205 and Big Lick Road/Liberty Hill Church Road, then branches off to the east and west, moving around the borders of several properties in the area.

Commissioner Mike Efird said the line was “agreed upon by both municipalities as to where we agree each one can limit their annexations.” He said the line does not divide any properties and said it was a “mutual agreement” between the towns.

The town council had a public hearing before Monday’s meeting, but no one spoke for or against the border.
