Glenwood Estates residents must pay full connection fee

"Washington, though, said that the issue had already been settled in 2010 when the council offered annexation to Glenwood Estates residents in return for a lower fee, but few residents responded."

And the reason few responded was because the city failed appropriately notify Glenwood Estates residents of the offered annexation. Instead of mailing notification of the issue, your city staff relied on a Homeowners group, which not everyone is a member of, to distribute the information. Just another example of the good old boy system this city seems to run on.

And you failed to mention the city was required to allow the hook ups as part of the deal to get your sewer plant. I would suggest if the area is annexed in the next 5-10 years a refund of the difference between in city and out of city connect fees be given. That would seem fair to all.
