CLEVELAND, TN (WRCB) -
The continued 59-year debate over Tennessee's forced annexation law's reached a major milestone on Wednesday when a bill passed the house. Plans sketched by the City of Cleveland engineers have now been placed on hold.
Homeowner Association President William Brown says he is happy with the outcome. He says, "this would have cost us more money per year."
Cleveland city planner Corey Dival disagrees and says, trash collection could save around 181 dollars , water about 25 and sewer services 142 dollars a year.
Governor Bill Haslam is waiting to sign the bill into law.
