Annexation is the process that transfers unincorporated territory from towns to cities and villages. It is a landowner-driven process. Landowners often seek annexation to obtain sewer and water or other municipal services not available in the town, but there may be other reasons as well.
Wisconsin statutes authorize a number of different annexation methods. Annexation by unanimous approval and by one-half approval are the most common of these methods.
