A public hearing on what’s being billed as an “unusual annexation” will be the first of five hearings scheduled when the Billings City Council meets Monday evening. The meeting begins at 6:30 p.m. in council chambers at city hall.
The public hearings will be held following the council handling its 13-item consent agenda. The hearings are on these matters:
Proposed annexation of a 69-acre parcel on the west side of Shiloh Road at the northwest corner of the intersection of Shiloh Crossing Boulevard and South Shiloh Road, just north of the Knife River gravel mining operation...
...Adjusting city election ward boundaries to adjust to the council’s Aug. 25 annexation of the property...Ward 3 boundaries will be affected, a ward currently represented by Rich McFadden and Becky Bird. Two readings — on Monday and on Sept. 22 — are required before approval of the ordinance.
