Annexation stipulations repealed by New Market Township board

New Market Township has repealed the stipulations it placed regarding annexation of 130 acres into the city of New Market. The action came at its regular meeting Tuesday, April 5.

Last month, the board approved annexation of the 130 acres, but placed stipulations on the annexation which the city could not accept. The stipulations dealt mostly with the location of a proposed elementary school to be built by the New Prague Area School District.

Since the town board passed the resolution last month, township elections resulted in the ouster of Joel Helmberger from the board.
