Annexation Fight

Residents of the Bradley Heights and Larchmont Neighborhood received a letter in the mail last month from the city of Rockford saying their community would be annexed into the city of Rockford.

The problem, this neighborhood has been under Winnebago County jurisdiction for over 50 years and residents want it to stay that way.

Although the community is part of Winnebago County, Rockford is trying to use a 2006 appellate court ruling to try and annex the area. The annexation goes into affect in a few weeks and then the residents plan to file a lawsuit against the annexation.
