Summary
Hosted by Lon Backman, this program features five different programs devoted to the issue of annexation of Henrico County by the City of Richmond. The date of the programs are not known, but thought to be from 1960. Backman interviews various individuals involved in the annexation/consolidation controversy. Horace Edwards, Richmond City Manager, discusses the annexation ordinance process, various studies taking place, court procedures, annexation case questions, costs involved, referendum procedures, and statewide trends in annexation cases. A. Howe Todd, executive director of the Richmond Regional Planning Commission, talks about the work and composition of the Commission, the merger/annexation process, tax issues, differences between annexation and merger, and the work of the Public Administration Service (PAS). Richmond City Councilman J. Edward Lawler explains the issues involved, tax burden, business tax revenues in the city vs. county tax revenues, who would benefit from annexation, the chances of annexation succeeding, the resolution introduced by him on annexation, effect of the recent flood in Richmond on the issue, and race and school issues and their effect on the proposal. Joseph T. Williams, Jr., a member of the Virginia House of Delegates, states his position on the issue and why is vehemently opposed to annexation, discusses his legislative work in the General Assembly on the topic, and how issues of race could affect the question of annexation. Burl A. Parks, director of city planning, sums up the issues involved in annexation, merger, and status quo. Parks discusses what the alternatives are, forms of government, services provided, and tax issues involved in all three options
