Annexation issues resurface at Bethel meeting

During a recent Bethel Council meeting, solicitor George Leicht told council members that an annexation request for property north of the village had been received.

The owner of the property, Jim Royse, wanted to annex four tracts of land which include a pay lake and its perimeter property. Leicht expected the expense to survey the property to be about $1,000 and said that historically that expense would be paid for by the village.

The finance committee will discuss the matter and make a recommendation to council about how to proceed.

During the meeting, Rick Moore, a resident from Brown Street, addressed council regarding the proposed annexation.
