Hogeland replied that the website contains the procedures for applying to be annexed, not a policy on what properties would or would not be considered, and that the city still wants the Mt. Olive residents to be a part — even if it’s not right away.
“Annexation requests on roads will be considered after the policy has been developed and adopted,” Hogeland said.
Hogeland would not give a time frame on when properties outside the first phase would be considered.
This is a developing story; we’ll have further updates later.
