Marion Oaks Community Hopes to Become City
Residents of Marion Oaks have been looking into the possibility of becoming incorporated since 2005.
Tonight (June 4), they went before county commissioners and state legislators in hopes to get approval to enter a bill before the legislative assembly that will allow citizens to vote whether or not they would like to become a city.
Supporters say they would like to see their tax dollars work for them instead of being disbursed throughout the county.
If incorporated, Marion Oaks would have a population of about 15,000 residents, which would make it the second largest city in Marion County.
