***VOLUNTARY ANNEXATION PUBLIC HEARING QUESTIONS - WOSSUM RANCH***

1. Is the ETJ expansion within the rules of the population of the City of Weatherford, as to how far they can extend? 

The extraterritorial jurisdiction (ETJ) is determined by state statute (law) to extend 2 miles beyond the corporate limits of the City of Weatherford. The ETJ therefore is adjusted whenever the boundaries of the city are affected by annexation. Cities with a population of 25,000 to 49,999 have an ETJ boundary of 2 miles beyond the corporate city limits.

2. Is the area in yellow the 80 acres or does it include the purple also?

Yes, It includes the areas in Red, Yellow and Purple.

3. Who will vote on the extension of the ETJ?

4. Why is it going so far north? Differences in services offered now versus if in ETJ?

The extraterritorial jurisdiction (ETJ) is determined by state statute (law) to extend 2 miles beyond the corporate limits. There are no new services for anyone in the ETJ. This means residents within the ETJ will not be taxed or required to follow the rules and regulations of the City of Weatherford other than platting of new subdivisions, which would have previously been overseen by Parker County.
