TD Council Does Not Take Action On Revised Annexation Resolution

The Dalles City Council did not take action on a resolution to revise residential annexation policies at their meeting on Monday night, with municipal staff planning to bring back a revised document that would remove a section involving requiring consents to annexation.  The resolution as prepared for Monday’s meeting contained a clause requiring consents to annexation from residential property owners as they develop property or require connection to City utilities outside the City limits, and require a waiver of a one-year waiting period.  Councilors indicated they wanted the clause completely removed, with Russ Brown saying he was concerned about situations like septic system failures on one property triggering a series of annexations.  The revised resolution will come to the Council in two weeks.  In other business, the Council gave the go ahead for The Dalles-Wasco County Library to add a second library clerk position devoted to youth services.  Library director Jeff Wavrunek said the position fits within their budget and is sustainable.
