Council Meets In Defiance

Defi­ance City Coun­cil met Tues­day night and with two mem­bers not mak­ing the meet­ing, coun­cil let lie five ordi­nances, includ­ing one to estab­lish an endowed fund for the Andrew Tut­tle Museum.

Accord­ing to the Cres­cent News, Defiance’s annex­a­tion efforts started to become more aggres­sive last year. Affected prop­erty own­ers out­side the city lim­its who received munic­i­pal water ser­vice were informed that their water ser­vice would be ter­mi­nated if they did not agree to annex­a­tion.

Many prop­erty own­ers opposed that plan, with two going so far as to file court pro­ceed­ings against the city. Those suits have since been dis­missed.

Still, many prop­erty own­ers in Defi­ance say they didn’t like the idea of being forced to do some­thing like that by the government.
