Compared with the intense study process, the City Council’s Klahanie annexation decision was a mostly subdued affair.
With a vote of 6-1, the council’s role in this round of potential annexation took a large step forward with the decision to place the future of the Klahanie’s residents in the hands of its voters.
As opposed to the vocal public hearings and the numerous hours examining the Nesbitt Planning, Inc. financial study, a small presentation was delivered to the council by Finance Director Diane Marcotte and Bob Harrison summarizing the Land & Shore Committee’s recommendation. Following that, most of the council gave detailed reasons for individual support on the resolution and approved it.
