The annexation is set to take effect June 30. If it goes through, the Cumberland County manager said he may try to get rid of some vacant deputy positions.
The county manager said the people those deputies would need to protect could become the city's responsibility.
The city wants to annex the Gates Four community and some residents are fighting the annexation in court.
