Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
What is your question for us about this situation?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Not in city limits now. Papers they want us to sign and have notarized says we want to be in the city, we do not want to sign something that says what we do not want. City says they will shut our water off if we do not sign. If we sign, it's like signing legal paper and lying on it. There is a disabled person in our household. Do we have to sign a paper and lie about our wishes?

Thank you for your reply.
You do not have to sign agreeing to be annexed, but the other side of that is legally they do not have to provide you city water if you refuse to agree. So you have a right to not sign agreeing to their terms to provide water and if you do not want to be in the city this is a choice you have to make and would have to be prepared to obtain water through some other means, as the city may have a requirement that to get water from them that you have to agree to be in the city.
