At Wednesday night's public work session, the Wentzville Board of Aldermen will discuss the issues of annexation into and de-annexation from the City of Wentzville.
The issue arose when the city received a request for de-annexation last November from the owners of four properties in the Meadowbrook Estates subdivision.
In their letter to the city, the owners said that they had agreed to annexation when a developer approached them about running a sewer line through their properties to a new development. The property owners agreed to the annexation in exchange for access to city sewer system.
However, the developer went bankrupt. The development, along with the promised sewer lines, never happened. The land that was going to be developed instead became a single private residence. With the possibility of sewer access gone, the owners requested de-annexation.
At that time, the board of aldermen requested further information on the issues of annexation and de-annexation before deciding the matter. Among other information, they requested a list of other parcels within the city limits that may be in similar circumstances.
Other topics for the work session include:
- Vacancy review
- Strategic Planning Session agenda topics
- Work Session topic list
The board is planning their next strategic planning session for March.
