Shenandoah City Council members approved the annexation of a portion of city land to be used for a proposed rainwater drainage system at the May 22 meeting.

In a nutshell

Council previously adopted a resolution at the May 8 meeting to allow a public hearing regarding the annexation of two different locations listed under the Montgomery Central Appraisal District.

Prior to the decision, council held a public hearing where Wes Stevens, a member of the city's planning and zoning commission, was the only person who spoke about the ordinance.

“I support this annexation, and it’s a good move and good for Shenandoah—especially the track across Johnson Road—and it will make a good water well,” Stevens said.

The proposed area will be used as a rainwater drainage system that will be developed and administered by the city, according to city documents.

Also on the agenda

Montgomery County Judge Mark Keough was in attendance to administer the oath of office for Mayor John Escoto, council member Ron Raymaker and Frank Robinson following the May 4 election.
