Court Street : Lewisburg, WV 24901 businesses were positive about the annexation decision. Manager Johnny Totten of Pocahontas Food- land said, "It was the only way we could get flood insurance. With ,his we'll also eventually get city water and sewage treatment. This, along with a decrease in fire insurance, will help offset our increase in taxes as a result of entering the city." Tony Hinkle, owner of Kentucky Fried Chicken, said, "I'm somewhat mixed about it. We have our own flood insurance through Kentucky Fried Chicken. However, I am inter- ested in the possibility of getting city water and sewage treatment in th~ future. We have our own well righ'., now, but when the water gets toc high we can't use it. We also hav~ our own sewage system--it woulc be great not having to take care o1 it." One of the few Riverside resi- dents speaking out against the an- nexation was Ted Bright, who voiced his objections at a public hearing on the issue January 26 at the courthouse. In a later interview Mr Bright said, "1 don't like it. I don't think it's a legal annexation, be- cause I don't see it as a 'minor boundary change.' rm not the least bit against anyone wanting to get flood insurance, but I don't think the city should take in this area until it is prepared to provide it with water and sewage service." City Council members have given no official indication of how long it will take to extend water and sew- age lines to the newly annexed area. However, the city is currently exploring the possibility of acquiring federal funds for the project, accord- ing to Councilman Sam Fetton.
