City continues to seek annexation of Hampton Inn, Comfort Suites
Proposals stem from old resolution
Sunday, December 4, 2011
The city is continuing a process to select an area of annexation, but city staff seem to be looking to complete a plan from 2009.
Jefferson City officials are in the process of reviewing possible areas of annexation on the western end of the city.
But the city has been discussing annexation of the Hampton Inn and Comfort Suites since at least 2009, when it received requests from hotels within city limits to pursue annexing the two hotels that are not affected by the city's lodging tax.
The committee is expected to take action on the annexation issue at its next meeting, Dec. 15.
Answer the News Tribune's Facebook Question:
Jefferson City officials are reviewing possible areas of annexation on the western end of the city. City officials acknowledge the chief motivation is to bring in the Hampton Inn and Comfort Suites so they would be paying the city’s lodging tax. Should the city annex this area into the city?
