Re: Gretna Annexation

Sorry. I reread my statement and its clearly a little confusing. I only meant that the 10K rule isn't a factor here because Omaha isn't eligible to annex Chalco.

Re: Gretna Annexation

I think the Chalco powers-that-be saw the writing on the wall--there was no way they could get to 10k population that would make them annex-proof. Funny that no one has wanted to annex them, after all! I wonder why that is, to be honest. 40+ y/o houses, can't be a lot of debt after all these years....
