Elkhorn’s last day as “Elkhorn” was yesterday. I don’t recall ever really hearing about such aggressive annexation of a incorporated city. Yes, of course you hear of cities battling it out over unincorporated new or old development surrounding or at the edge of their cities.
But, the fact that another city annexing another city which had it’s own identity and provided it’s own serves is something new to me. I agree that this happens when the best interest is for both sides. I admit I have not read much about what the “former” residents of the lost city of Elkhorn feels about the whole issue. The Omaha World Herald has a horrible website and provided little information.
“There’s no place like home” has new meaning doesn’t it, even though home is now OMAHA?
Also, Elkhorn’s city site is still up. http://www.elkhorncity.net/
