Vote As We Like Or Lose Your Water!
Bill Collier- An American Freedomist
So says the city of Rock Hill, in New York’s York County!
The city wants to increase revenue by gaining control over commercial interests along what is called the “S.C. 161 corridor” or Miller Pond. To do that, the city will need to annex the area, which includes some 120 property owners, and this requires a 75% approval amongst residents.
For the city, which wants control over the neighborhood so that it can tax economic activity there, this is a major problem.
When the original development was built, the developer allegedly agreed to give the city the right to annex the area at a later date in exchange for the city extending its water mains to homes in the development at the time of construction. The developer, however, failed to disclose this to buyers and, after selling the homes, is no longer a property owner.
The annexation statute stipulates that 75% of property owners must agree to annexation, and since only 20 out of 120 property owners have agreed thus far, the city has decided that it has the power to cut off water to property if the property owner refuses to agree to annexation!
The city charges residents in the development twice what it charges residents within the city limits, however it now believes that the original agreement it had with the developer, which was not disclosed to the buyers, according to the Miller Pond Home Owner’s Association, is binding on the buyers. The city says that because the buyers are not willing to abide by an agreement they say was not disclosed to them, and which would have been enough to cause them not to buy the property in the first place, the city no longer have to provide water and will turn off the spigot by noon, September 16, 2010.
While it is likely that the City will prevail, simply by using this device or the new interpretation of eminent domain, the justice of the case is clear- local property owners are being blackmailed and bullied into falling under the dominion of an authority they do not want to fall under and by natural rights are not obliged to fall under.
