Annexation Dispute Over KOA Property
The town of Tellico Plains approved a resolution in December to annex 25 acres of Stokely's property that is under development for a KOA camp- ground. Stokely owns about 1500 acres around Tellico Plains.
David Buuck, attorney for William Stokely, addressed city officials at the last city council meeting. Buuck requested the town reconsider annexing the Stokely family property along Ballplay Road. Buuck said Stokely thinks a landowner should be able to choose who governs them.
The alderman said they would like a meeting with Stokely to discuss the annexation. The officials said they welcome Stokely and don't want to fight with him. The Mayor said it would be better to work together.
The town has agreed to supply city services to the KOA campground. Stokely has paid for installation of water and sewer lines at the campground. A second reading of the annexation ordinance was read. State law requires a third reading before the annexation ordinance becomes final.
