Stanford Mayor Bill Miracle said Tuesday that he would accept a petition against the city's proposed annexation of 200 acres of land on the northwest side of Stanford.
Miracle could challenge the petition, but said those behind the drive got the numbers they needed. "The petition is legitimate, and I'm going to accept it as presented," he said.
The successful petitioners have delayed action on the proposal until after the 2010 general election, when the subject will be placed on the ballot.
