The Texas Association of Realtors has approved to help 5 counties in Texas become Tier 2 Counties. If a county is Tier 2 then they have the ability to vote on any annexation. TAR is not for or against annexation, but would like to give the people the opportunity to vote either for or against. The Counties that they are going to help with advertising and education are Parker, Palo Pinto, Johnson, Wise, and Freestone. These Counties had to get a petition together with the required number of signatures to be able to get on the upcoming ballot. TAR will now begin the process of getting the word out regarding being a Tier 2 County, and why this makes a difference. Please contact my office if you need any additional information regarding this important issue.
