After months of discussion of a potential annexation of the Klahanie area, the City Council will vote on an intent resolution tonight.
The meeting, which is open to the public, will be held in the council chambers, 135 E. Sunset Way, beginning at 7 p.m.
At the July 1 council meeting, a resolution appeared that detailed the city’s intent to annex the Klahanie area and set a date for an election by that area’s residents in April 2014. That resolution was passed along to the council’s Land & Shore Committee for review, which unanimously recommended it to the whole council during its July 9 meeting.
If the council approves the resolution, it will bring an election to Klahanie-area residents, who will decide whether they wish to join the city and share a proportionate amount of Issaquah’s debt.
