The annexed areas will be taken over by the city effective September 3.

The mayor’s office released a statement after the annexation vote. Mayor Jean Stothert is quoted as follows:

“The annexation package passed by the City Council today addresses most of my goals, but not all; eliminate areas or neighborhoods that are surrounded by the city; no additional costs for police and fire protection and does not include areas with street projects currently under contract.

“The Council did not support annexing Miracle Hill Golf Course or an area of ag land northeast of 60th and Harrison.

“Miracle Hill has avoided annexation several times over the last 15 years. The owner’s argument against annexation is potential redevelopment of the site. My sincere hope is we can work with the owner to get this property into the city next year, if it is not redeveloped.

“The homeowners and businesses in the areas annexed today can expect quality customer service from all city departments.”
