Memphis, Tn – The City of Memphis has halted its plans to annex the Gray’s Creek area in Southeast Shelby County.
Tuesday, the Council held a special meeting to officially “table” the annexation. The Council did pass the annexation on a second reading, but then tabled indefinitely, so they could move forward with a single vote to pass the measure if there are more annexation bills brought up on the state level.
The move comes after State Senator Mark Norris dropped his legislation that interfered with the city’s annexation agreement.

Earlier this month, Senator Norris proposed a resolution that would give parts of Memphis’ annexation territory to the County.

Memphis responded by moving ahead on annexation.
Now both sides are standing off.
