In a previous meeting of the Centre City Council, Councilman Glenn Chandler suggested that the city consider annexing portions of Highway 9 at Blackwell’s Crossroads, around the lake to the Leesburg Bridge and Highway 411.
In a more recent meeting, Chander said he had spoken with Harold Day, a member of the Centre Water Works and Sewer Board, and Roy Alford, manager, Centre Water Works. According to Alford and Day, such a move would involve approximately 550 houses (meters) at a cost of approximately $1,112,000. These funds could be obtained through FHA grants, Chandler said.
Chandler discussed concerns in a previous meeting about the town of Cedar Bluff considering annexation of certain areas of the county into the town limits. Cherokee County Representative to the Alabama Legislature Richard Lindsey, Chandler said, can submit a bill for the legislature’s consideration if at least 65 percent of the residents in this area approve the annexation.
The council will consider annexation proposal.
