Annexation issue to be on Tuesday ballot
Friday, August 3, 2012
Jefferson City is seeking voter approval Tuesday of an annexation that would include a new area to the city’s 4th Ward.
The Meadows by the Club annexation proposal includes an area of 158.2 acres in the Apache Flats area, including 27 housing units and two hotels. Included in the area are the Hampton Inn, Comfort Suites, J.C. Mattress Factory, a quarry, a turtle farm and the Meadows by the Club subdivision.
If the proposal succeeds, the area would join the city’s 4th Ward. If the issue doesn’t pass with a simple majority in both the city limits and the proposed annexed area, a second election would be held, most likely in November. The two votes combined would need a two-thirds majority to pass.
