Judge denies Sullivan County annexation bid

SULLIVAN — A special judge has rejected a move by the town of Sullivan to annex more than 1,000 acres of adjacent land, including neighborhoods and businesses near U.S. 41.

In an 11-page decision handed down today, Special Judge Joseph D. Trout ruled that the annexation, championed by Mayor Clint Lamb, was not to move forward.

This followed a legal battle pitting the Sullivan city administration and some Sullivan residents against businesses and residents of the area to be annexed. Both sides presented their arguments during a two-day hearing in September in Sullivan Superior Court.

Today, Mayor Lamb said the ruling was a disappointment, but not the end of the story. The city is considering other options, including an appeal of the decision, he said when reached by phone.

See Tuesday’s Tribune-Star for more details on the annexation ruling and reaction from Sullivan.
