CARY, N.C. — Tensions flared Tuesday night in Cary as about 200 people turned out for an informational meeting on the town's latest annexation proposal.
"I personally think you ought to be ashamed to have the American flag in this room. The way you acted is not what our forefathers fought for," said an annexation opponent.
The plan would annex about 2,400 acres in southwest Wake County, affecting 4,700 residents.
Cary came out with the plan after boundary talks with Holly Springs fell through. Cary accuses Holly Springs of secretly trying to annex some of the property it wants.
At its town board meeting Tuesday, Holly Springs commissioners adopted a resolution stating they were not interested in all that land and said the town would still like to work out a boundary agreeable to everyone.
