Officials turning to state lawmakers for policy change.
Earlier this year, Henry Te petitioned the town of Franklin to have his property on 441 South annexed into the town limits. Town Clerk Chad Simons was instructed to examine the issue and found a state law that would prohibit Te's request from being granted.
"We found that this property did not meet one of the necessary standards to be eligible for annexation into the Town. It is and was part of a subdivision, which per statute, requires all portions of the subdivision to join in the petition for annexation, or the town would be prohibited from annexing it," explained Franklin Attorney John Henning Jr.
