City Council is expected to sign off on an non-annexation agreement for some northside neighborhoods.
City Council member Joe Krier talked to us about the delay. He says it wouldn’t have happened if Mayor Taylor hadn’t urged a compromise on the original plan.
He says those neighborhoods near the Comal County line on 281 would have become part of the city much sooner.
Krier supports putting off the annexation for 16 years because it gives those areas and the city more time to get ready.
“This gives these areas a long period a time to get ready for annexation and to plan ahead for it. And it gives the city a long period of time to be ready with police protection, fire protection, parks and libraries for those areas.”
Council will take up the matter at today’s meeting.
