Allegedly, a majority of residents in Lake Junaluska want to merge the community into the Town of Waynesville. Rather than going through the normal route of requesting voluntary annexation, they want to merge through legislation. Charges of fishiness have been leveled by both sides. One claims the legislation was derailed through political machinations, and the other claims the first is afraid the decision won’t go their way if they try to be democratic about it.
