Defi­ance city offi­cials are now hav­ing sec­ond thoughts regard­ing a dead­line they pre­vi­ously issued, requir­ing the local Gen­eral Motors plant on Ohio 281 to begin annex­a­tion pro­ceed­ings or have their munic­i­pal water ser­vice shut off.

A let­ter attempt­ing to force the issue was sent to GM ear­lier this year in which GM was told that it had until Nov. 1 to com­ply.

GM balked at the city’s order. Now, city offi­cials are back­ing away from the matter.
