The value of annexation empowers people to choose the government that will provide them with the highest level of services and be responsive to their needs. The City of Morrow has continually provided the highest level of services while setting the standards for quality growth.
There are many reasons why property owners and citizens desire to have their property annexed into the City of Morrow. The City offers several advantages such as:
Increased Levels of Service
- Excellent fire and ambulance services
- Police protection, including vacation patrols and code enforcement - higher police officer to resident ratio and smaller patrolling areas
- Twice a week back door garbage pick-up (quarterly fee)
- Mosquito control
- Limbs and junk pick-up free once per week
- Street lights at no cost
- Zoning, building and neighborhood protection
- Neighborhood Watch program
- Parks and neighborhood events
More Responsive Local Government
- No property taxes ($150,000 homestead exemption guarantee – owner occupied)
- Increased property values
- A strong sense of community
