Annexation wasn’t on the agenda for Jellico’s Sept. 15 board of mayor and aldermen meeting, but it was on the people’s mind.
A crowd showed up to show their displeasure over the town’s plans for expansion. At 6:30 p.m., a seat could not be found, forcing many to stand in the packed meeting room.
Talk of annexation had attracted the crowd, and created a stir in the areas surrounding Jellico.
The board was not ready to talk about annexation, Mayor Les Stiers said.
