Should Annexation law be changed?

Annexation has been one means of cities of all types to increase their land mass and tax base. Current state laws do not provide the citizens impacted by annexation the opportunity to vote or provide input on the issue. This includes existing city residents who will take on the added land to develop and maintain and the residents in the areas to be annexed .

What do you think of the existing annexation law? Do you think it should be changed, and if so how?
