The fact that KRS It indicates nothing more than that the legislature in that particular statute chose to spell out specifically a requirement that is inherent in the other statutes. The fact that the legislature did not contemplate noncontiguous annexations is illustrated by KRS It is our conclusion that annexation of noncontiguous territory is not authorized by the Kentucky statutes.
This construction of the statutes will not, we think, unduly hamper city expansion because in most instances where property near but not contiguous to a city has developed to such extent as to be suitable and adaptable for annexation, a reasonable amount of intervening territory, though not presently suitable by itself for annexation, may be annexed with the other property. See Mitchell v. Central City, Ky. We think the answer should be that the proper contiguity should not be found to exist in such situations unless the corridor or finger itself has a municipal value, i.
Otherwise, the use of the corridor or finger must be considered a mere subterfuge. We do not undertake to say that the annexation of a radial highway, alone, never could serve a legitimate municipal purpose, but in the instant case it is obvious that the annexation of the two highways was for the sole purpose of providing contiguity for the three annexed tracts.
No reason or purpose is shown for the annexation of the highways as such. Under these circumstances it is our opinion that the annexation of the highways was a mere subterfuge, and therefore they cannot supply the necessary contiguity for the three tracts to which they lead. A number of courts have held that corridor annexation is not proper.
