History

Mountainboro was incorporated on October 31, 1963. Additional land was annexed into the town on March 12, 1981 and September 14, 1993. The 1993 annexation included the Skyhaven Estate subdivision. In October 2007, a referendum that proposed the annexation of Mountainboro by the city of Boaz passed by a one-vote margin. The result of the referendum was challenged, and legal activities delayed further action until 2009. At that time, Etowah County Circuit Judge David Kimberley upheld the result of the 2007 referendum. On August 10, 2009, the Boaz City Council passed an ordinance to annex the territory within the town limits of Mountainboro. Mountainboro ceased to exist as a town when it was officially annexed by the city of Boaz on August 14, 2009.[1][2][3]
