Fayetteville Grows with Annexation

More than 42,000 people who live in Cumberland County woke up this morning as the city of Fayetteville\’s newest residents. Just past midnight, a large scale annexation took effect that expands Fayetteville by 28 square miles and pushes its population to around 175,000. The city also will see more than $9,000,000 each year in additional property tax payments. And some of the people who\’ll be paying those taxes aren\’t too pleased about it. Rusty Jacobs reports.
