The annexation of 658 acres would increase the town's size by 6 percent and bring an estimated 1,635 new residents to the community. But some residents in the annexation area who don't want to pay for city services submitted petitions to force a public vote.

The Rapid City Journal reports that the City Council certified the petitions had the required 403 signatures and scheduled the vote for next month.
