City to consider annexing two areas

By Roxanne McKnight
Staff Writer Groesbeck might get slightly bigger as a result of annexing two areas of land surrounded by the city but not offi cially a part of the city. City Administrator Jim Cox presented to city council at its April 21 meeting three areas of land to consider for possible annexation, but one was eliminated from consideration. Cox said two council members in the past two years had requested he provide the information about areas to consider annexing. Normally annexations can only be voluntary, or requested, Cox told the council. There are exceptions, however, and the three properties he brought to the council’s attention fall under those guidelines.

The council had talked at their Jan. 20 meeting about possibly putting a one- or two-dollar surcharge on the water bills for 10 months, but they decided instead last week on the $5 fee for six months.
