Plans to expand the City of Sullivan have been put on hold after the proposal was shut down Monday morning.

Special judge Joe Trout of Clay County has ruled that the annexation for the areas north and west of the current city limits will not take place.

"We are just happy that the judge saw on our way and we hope that if there is an appeal filed that that decision goes our way also," said Kenneth Wayne Plummer, owner of D&K Enterprises.
    
Mayor Clint Lamb added: "We're going to continue to try and bring business and the community, increase our quality-of-life, do Parks and Recreation. We're going to execute our comprehensive MasterPlan is open, and the city of Sullivan with or without this decision is going to continue to prosper I promise."

A annexation plan to expand Sullivan to the south was approved earlier this year.
