II. Public Hearing – ZA #19-18/Annexation/25W371 Armbrust Avenue

a. Presentation

City Manager Dzugan stated the purpose of the public hearing is to consider the annexation of a parcel of approximately 7,800 square feet at Armbrust and Gary Avenue. The City approved a preannexation agreement for this property in November 1999 to allow the home to connect to City water. At that time, the property was not contiguous to the City, so the agreement was made that once it was contiguous it could become annexed. The City is seeking to rezone this property to R3.

Krzysztof Koc, 25W371 Armbrust Avenue, stated he has owned the property since 2003, and he asked if there will be any changes to his property once it is annexed.

City Manager Dzugan stated there will be no major changes other than a City address and a property tax increase of about 10%, but the owner would receive all City services. He confirmed that there are no further requirements from the owner.

b. Public Comment

There was no public comment.

c. Council Comment

The Council discussed that the pre-annexation agreement should have been disclosed during the sale of the property.

III. Adjournment

Councilman Barbier moved and Councilwoman Robbins seconded a motion to close the public hearing at 7:06 p.m.

Roll Call Vote:

Ayes: Councilman Barbier

Councilwoman Bray-Parker

Absent: Mayor Suess

Councilman Zaruba

Motion Carried Unanimously

Respectfully submitted,

Susan Bishel
