Kinston City Council Approves Annexation

The city of Kinston will receive an influx of new residents this fall.

In a three to two vote Monday night, the Kinston City Council voted yes to annex 492 acres of residential property currently outside the city limits.

Mayor Buddy Rich says the annexation will give Kinston some added tax revenue and provide the new Kinston citizens with some city benefits, such as trash and leaf pickup and the protection of city police.

Many residents living in the Crestview, Briarwood, and Silver Creek Subdivisions are upset about the decision they call, forced annexation.

Kinston City Manager, Scott Stevens, says the annexation will go in effect at the end of November.
