McCoy files Annexation Legislation 

Representative Peter McCoy filed new annexation legislation last week in Columbia.   He explained, “This bill modifies legal contiguity in a way that will allow people who were left out of the Town in 2012 to be included.”   House Bill 4203 applies when a municipality is entirely located within a special purpose district that has an elected governing body.   If the bill passes, then any property that would be contiguous to the municipality but for a break in the contiguity of the special purpose district would be legally contiguous with the municipality.    Existing annexation law could then be applied.   Mayor Bill Woolsey stated, “All James Islanders owe Representative McCoy thanks for his work on this issue.   Once this bill is signed into law, we can start putting together a petition drive and annexation election.  The Town can be reunited.”   Representative McCoy believes that the bill has a good chance in the House this year and hopes that the South Carolina Senate will consider it early next year.
