No protests on land annexation

By Staff | Jan 2, 2015

The Rugby City Council met Monday at noon to hold a hearing regarding annexation of land into the city.

No written protests were received, nor were any community members in protest present.

More than 178 acres of land south and east of Rugby will be annexed for business and residential development, as decided at the Nov. 3, 2014 Council meeting.

With no protests, discussion followed. Mayor Arland Geiszler said Wade Senger, of Interstate Engineering, provided a surveyor’s map of the land to be annexed, and a history of the land was provided by County Recorder Lori Miron. Ward 3 Council Member James Hoffert asked if the exclusions were defined. Alan & Linda Beaver, Anthony & Angela Deplazes, Gary & Helen Laughridge and Norval & Arlene Johnson did not want to be annexed and were excluded. A highway near the land being annexed was also excluded. Geiszler said the exclusions were defined by meets and bounds. Ward 2 Council Member Gary Kraft asked whether there would be water conflicts should the city wish to annex properties near the area being annexed in the future. Water service in the area being annexed was released for the city to service.

Ward 1 Council Member Bruce (Allen) Rheault and Ward 2 Council Member Dave Bednarz were absent.
