Annexation Update – March 27 mtg. cancelled
       The scheduled March 27 Council study session to look at annexation has been postponed. 
       The City Clerk says, “The study session regarding Annexation information has been postponed until later this summer so it more closely coincides with when an annexation may be coming before City Council.”
       The Planning Director said, “… future hearing dates … will not be set until internal reviews are done: reviews that could take either weeks or months.”  He goes on to say, “The earliest possible that this could appear before Council would be summer …”
