Because of a mistake made years ago, residents of Hill Drive have paid Roanoke County taxes, received Roanoke County services, and voted in Roanoke County elections.
But as some property owners have applied for building permits, and others have considered subdividing their land, it became apparent that the homes were located across the county line.
Eight children now attend Roanoke County Schools, and their parents don't want to move them.
