Results Announced in Pike Road Annexation Vote

Pike Road, Al. (WSFA) -- Voters in a south Montgomery neighborhood cast their ballots today in an effort to join the town of Pike Road, and it appears they will do just that.

About 200 homeowners in the Rolling Hills subdivision had  the right to cast a ballot and Pike Road Mayor Gordon Stone says 117 voted in favor of the annexation, just 15 voted against the measure.

While several provisional ballots must be counted, Stone says they will not change the overall result of the vote. 

Rolling Hills will now join Pike Road, and the hopes are that the town's new population will be large enough population to start a publicly funded school.

Stone says the addition to his town will significantly aid the town's efforts to bring a municipal school to Pike Road.

Members of the Pike Road Educational System for Excellence in Teaching have been working and preparing for the day when the town will reach 5,000 residents.

That's the number of citizens needed so the school plans can be put into action.
