While property owners in some areas just outside the Smithville city limits have shown interest in annexation, some members of the board of aldermen expressed the opinion that the remaining areas of the city not hooked to the city sewer system be attended to before any further annexation takes place. During last week's meeting of the city council, Alderman Shawn Jacobs brought the matter to the attention of the mayor and aldermen, saying that grant money should be sought to alleviate the problem of some city residents' lack of access to the sewer system. "There are houses in the city limits that don't have sewer," Jacobs told the assembly.
