This bill amends the Charter of the Town of Blades to allow annexation without a referendum only if the property to be annexed requests the annexation. Also, if a petition of over 10% of eligible voters requesting a referendum is submitted with 30 days of Council approval, then a referendum must be held. The cost of a referendum when a contiguous property owner desires to come into Blades to obtain their utilities and services seems unnecessary.
