ROCKPORT, TX -- On Tuesday, May 25, 2021, Aransas County and the City of Aransas Pass went to trial in the State of Texas ex rel. Assoc. Against Annexation Abuse v. the City of Aransas Pass, Texas case.
The Aransas Pass City Council held a strategic budget workshop Friday, June 18 and heard presentations from city departments concerning priorities for the fiscal year 2021 – 2022.
The State’s description of the annexation case is filled with inaccurate statements. For example, any suggestion that the City of Aransas Pass requested a mistrial is wrong. The record will show that the attorney who asked the Court for a mistrial was the State’s attorney. On May 25th the City was ready to defend their actions in a court of law, where lawsuits should be heard. It will still be ready the next time it comes to Court.
