A political watchdog group has joined forces with the Citizen's Assn. of Sunset Beach in its appeal of a recent court decision regarding the community's annexation to Huntington Beach.
The Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Assn., which formed in 1978 to defend taxpayers' rights, plans to prepare the briefs and oral arguments for the association's appeal of Orange County Superior Court Judge Frederick P. Horn's August decision to allow Huntington to annex the neighboring seaside community.
Assn. President Jack Markovitz said his group planned to file its appeal as soon as Horn issued a signed final judgment on the case. He expected the judgment within the coming days.
