LIST: The properties targeted for annexation

Columbia is targeting 23 of the county's most expensive properties for annexation. Altogether, the properties would bring in an additional $267,051 a year in city property taxes - enough to pay salaries and benefits for five police officers.

The properties listed below - along with their value and expected tax revenue - do not have water covenants. That means the city cannot annex them without the property owners' consent.

- 177 Greystone Blvd., $4.3 million, $17,701

- 801 Chinquapin Road, $3.4 million, $13,708

- 200 Saluda River Road, $3.2 million, $13,197

- 1 Harbison Way, $2.8 million, $11,353

- 1115 Shop Road, $2 million, $8,169

- 917 Rosewood Drive, $1.8 million, $7,339

- 621 S. Assembly St., $1.1 million, $4,559

- 1080 Shop Road, $956,700, $3,909
