Village of Simsboro eyes annexation
SIMSBORO — A standing- room only crowd of concerned citizens came out to the regularly scheduled Simsboro town hall meeting last week. Citizens sat quietly and waited for the meeting to begin, and once it did, there appeared to be an air of tension felt by all.
Simsboro Mayor Willie Hendricks started the meeting as usual but amended the opening of the meeting just a tad. He invited Patrick Jefferson, a lawyer from Arcadia, to speak to the townspeople about a proposed annexation. Jefferson provided an abridged version of what happens during a town land annexation.
