City hopes to follow up on resident concerns about annexation

City Council is making sure that following the conclusion of the annexation merit hearing, they have an opportunity to consider all concerns raised by residents about potential annexation.

Mayor Bill Given says if they are successful in their annexation bid, they want to make sure there are no details or concerns that have not been addressed.

“One specific issue was seniors, when they turn 65 in the County, the County will clear their driveway, and so we would just need to discuss exactly how that would work, but I’m sure on service level things like that, the City has made the commitment to landowners that we will maintain the same service levels as the County.”

He’s recommended that staff bring forward all concerns to a committee meeting once the hearing is over.

Its is now into its final days, and tonight’s public portion will be the last opportunity for City and County residents to have their voices heard.

Anyone who would like to take part should be at the Stonebridge hotel by 5:30 p.m. to register.

The board still has to hear from County witnesses, followed by rebuttals from both parties.

Once the hearing wraps up, it could take 3 to 6 months for the Municipal Goverment Board to come to a decision.
