Last week's Fountain City Council meeting included a lengthy discussion on a proposal to de-annex 2,400 acres on the east side of the city.
But no action is imminent, as the council voted 5-2 to table the ordinance until April 26. Mayor Sharon Thompson and Council Member Tamara Estes voted against the delay, with Estes stating that a decision to grant the request seemed obvious considering the information that was presented.
"I just think it's a foregone conclusion with the threat of a lawsuit over our heads," Estes said. "I don't think we have a choice in the matter."
