One of those areas is the Route 40 East corridor.
Several businesses apparently want to move here -- except there are no sewer lines.
So Rocky Mount says it will build sewer lines and annex the surrounding land so it can get a share of the taxes.


But the county insists the town also share in the cost of building sewer lines in the less profitable Franklin Heights subdivision.
Town leaders say they have exhausted all means of negotiation-- so they're taking the county to court.
