The second edition of the first of three volumes on North Carolina annexation law, updated through 2006. Volume 1 addresses topics that are relevant regardless of the statutory annexation procedure used by a city. The second volume addresses voluntary annexation, and the third addresses involuntary annexation. Chapters in volume one are organized in approximate chronological order, as a city might work through an annexation. Chapters discuss the General Assembly's authority over and role in annexation law; matters that condition a city's power to annex; rules for annexations; the standing of various parties to challenge a completed annexation; a city's authority to repeal an annexation ordinance; and the effect of an annexation upon existing services and service providers, various election matters, and city revenues. It also notes the steps a city should take to assure receipt of revenues. Includes an index, list of cases cited, and list of statutes discussed.
