Liberty Annexation: Liberty City Council held the first of two public hearings yesterday on the next phase of the city’s annexation plan. Meanwhile, in Austin, Texas Governor Greg Abbot was signing into law a bill approved in special session that will restrict the municipal property annexation process as it exists today. The latest bill provides for an election to be held before any municipal annexation of property can take place. That will allow property owners in the area to be annexed to vote “yes” or “no” on allowing that annexation to take place. The City of Liberty has already completed four of a projected seven phases of that annexation that will ultimately take the Moss Bluff Gas Storage facility on FM 563 into the Liberty city limits. According to Liberty’s annexation attorney, Art Pirtle, the new state law limiting annexation will have no impact on Liberty’s annexation plan. He told council one of the provisions of the legislation is that it only affects municipalities that are located in large, populous counties. In fact, only cities located inside Texas counties with a population of 500,000 or more will need to have their future property annexations approved by voters.
