(Imperial City Council decides against annexation)…..At least for now.
The Council was discussing the possible annexation of about 900 acres Northwest of Imperial. The council said it is not that they do not want to annex the area that would add about 1,400 residents to the cities population, but the costs right now are prohibitive. It is estimated it was cost the city about $35 million in improvements to the area if it were to be annexed into the city limits. The council agreed to review the issue, possibly next year.
