25 YEARS AGO: The town of Lathrop was awarded a major victory over the city of Manteca when the San Joaquin County Local Agency Formation Commission votes 5-0 to decline Manteca’s request for 540 acres of Lathrop’s land to build an industrial park. The unanimous vote against Manteca’s annexation would pave the way for an election among the 5,000 Lathrop residents to decide whether it would become the county’s seventh city.
