Federal Judge: Gray annexation legal
Johnson City allowed to move forward
A U.S. District judge gave Johnson City the go-ahead to annex parts of Gray, Tennessee.
Residents were mad about possible annexations along Bobby Hicks Highway and Airport Road in Gray.
They argued the annexation plan was unconstitutionally vague and claimed it did not serve the health, safety and welfare of property owners.
A federal judge in Greeneville said it was within the city's urban growth boundaries and Johnson City could move forward.
