Raleigh annexes Angus Barn

Posted October 18, 2012 1:37 p.m. EDT

The Angus Barn may have always had a Raleigh address, but until this week it was located outside city limits.

Areas outside the city limits are governed by Wake County. The city continues to annex individual properties or groups of properties, but only on a voluntary petition basis.

Property owners who petition the city for annexation often want city services such as water, sewer and solid waste collection. Wake County doesn’t provide such services.
