Decatur Commission To Discuss Annexation Monday Night
A work session will be held at 6:30 p.m. Monday in city hall. The city commission is scheduled to decide Dec. 17 whether to go ahead with annexation.
The Decatur City Commission will hold a work session at 6:30 p.m. Monday to further discuss the possibility of annexing 2,000 people into the city.
The work session should last an hour. At 7:30 p.m., the commission starts one of its monthly meetings.
On Dec. 17, the city commission is scheduled to decide whether to proceed with annexation. If it's a go, a referendum probably would be held in November 2013.
Some of the land under consideration for annexation includes Suburban Plaza, the Publix shopping center at Clairemont and North Decatur Road, as well as residential areas.
Annexation would have a major impact on the the City Schools of Decatur. The city School Board meets at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 5, to talk about annexation themselves.
The school board meets again on Tuesday, Dec. 11, to decide on what recommendation to send to the city commission.
