Rosenberg annexes some land

The city of Rosenberg on Tuesday voted to annex two parcels of land in Fort Bend County and this means higher taxes for hundreds of homeowners.

The controversial plans approved by the Rosenberg City Council would affect 200 homes. The city claims it's necessary to annex those areas since city fire crews have serviced those areas for years at city taxpayer expense.

Annexation would mean an additional $500 in taxes on a $100,000 home.
