Defiance City Council met on Tuesday night, and the forced annexation program, along with truck traffic on Power Dam Road took up much of the meeting.
Other items were discussed however. Council received a presentation on a community health improvement plan and an update from a person promoting the city’s 0.3 percent income tax levy on Nov. 5th.
Council learned that the city’s new annexation initiative is moving forward, and a resident of Power Dam Road complained about the amount of truck traffic there. The homeowner said that trucks are damaging the street as they use it, apparently while following a 1973 map. The man said that a public meeting should be held on the issue.
Another resident there complained about the speed at which trucks travel that road.
