City leaders approve annexation ordinance
COLUMBUS — The City of Columbus has approved an annexation ordinance to bring 44 businesses and 1,462 homes into the city.
The annexation, officials told The Commercial Dispatch, would also add about $278,000 to the city treasury.
The annexation petition, approved Tuesday by the city council, must now be filed in Lowndes County Chancery Court.
Officials say the population increase would offset the 2,000 or so people who left the city according to the recent census. The population fell from an estimated 25,944 in 2000 to 23,640 in 2010.
