BAXTER -- Two ordinances for annexation were adopted by the Baxter City Council Tuesday as parts of the Highway 371 Frontage Road Project.
A public hearing was also held concerning the two properties, though no one commented.
The parcels are both located on Highway 371. One, the Slumberland property, is about five acres, said Trevor Walter, Baxter Public Works director. The other, he said, located just south of Rolling Thunder, is about two acres.
In 2001, the frontage road project will extend from Woida to Johnson Rental and across Highway 371 to the Menard's site on Dellwood Drive North.
In other council action, the council:
