According to the report, eight of the parcels already are partially located in the city of Decatur. Commissioners received annexation petitions for Derrydown during the City Commission’s April 7 meeting.
If the city decides to move forward with the annexation, it would add two students to the city school system in year one, and an estimated six students by year five. The report says the city wouldn’t need any additional staff to provide police and fire services.
City Commissioners recently approved an even larger annexation of 77 parcels in the Parkwood Neighborhood. That will add 14 students to the city’s school system in the first year, according to a service delivery report created for that annexation.
The June 2 meeting starts with a work session at 6:30 pm and followed by the regular meeting at 7:30 pm. During the work session, commissioners will discuss the proposed Fiscal Year 2015 budget.
The commission meets at City Hall, located at 509 North McDonough Street. All meetings are open to the public.
