June 27, 2012 Annexation Meeting at Saddle Club
I just wanted to remind all that we will be meeting Wednesday, June 27, 2012 at 6:30 pm to 7:30 pm at the Franklin County Saddle Club to discuss Annexation options.
Options include reduction of City Limits once annexation takes place (RCW 35A.16) and Change in Plan of Government (RCW 35A.06). Both require petitions signed by a number equal to 10% of those who voted in the last municipal election (4,780 in 2011, so 478 valid signatures necessary, round up to at least 600). We estimate there are 1,000 registered voters in area 2, which the City plans to annex by the end of the year for financial and staffing reasons. We have also been approached by all the individuals who were annexed by the City in 2009 in an effort to collect $35,000 per year utility tax revenue from the ordorization plant, which the City never received. These folks live on Road 76, Ter Rey, Road 80 and Court, and will provide roughly 50 valid signatures.
Please let your friends and neighbors know about the meeting.
Thank you and let me know if you have any questions.
