Annexation

Annexation can be a complicated issue. However, if you own property that is currently located outside of the town of Biscoe and is adjacent to town property and would like to be annexed into the town limits, please contact Town Hall. Listed below is the process by which property can be annexed into the town upon voluntary request by the property owner(s). This process takes 90 days for the Board of Commissioners to complete (Three official Board meetings).

1) Petition must be signed and submitted by all property owners that wish to be annexed into the municipal limits.

2) The Board must direct the Town Clerk to certify that the petition is sufficient.

3) A notice must be published advising of a public hearing on the proposed annexation.

4) The Board will consider all pertinent information and then make its decision about the annexation. If the Board chooses to annex the property, then it adopts an official ordinance annexing the area described into the municipal limits.
