Annexation Committee

General Committee Structure

Each committee shall consist of three members of the Council (unless otherwise dictated by the Charter or Codified Ordinances). Committee members shall be appointed by the Mayor, with the concurrence of the City Council, at the first regular meeting of the Council following any regular City election or as soon thereafter as is practicable. The Mayor should strive to include as many City Councilmembers as possible across the committees and to appoint a different City Councilmember to Chair each committee. The Chair of each committee shall be responsible to the Council for the function of the committee. The Mayor and other Councilmembers are welcome to attend and participate in the meetings of any committee however only committee members shall be permitted to vote on those items before the committee. The City Manager or designee shall attend all committee meetings, unless excused. Two committees may meet together in joint session when topics cross the scope of both committees. 
 


Purpose

Once the Planning Director deems an application for annexation is complete, the Mayor directs the committee to investigate the possibility of annexation. Not later than ninety (90) days following referral by the City Council, the committee submits a written report containing its findings and conclusions to the Mayor and City Council. The report includes the advantages and disadvantages of the proposed annexation, both to the City of Milford and to the territory proposed to be annexed, and contains the recommendation of the committee whether or not to proceed with the annexation and the reasons therein.
