State Chimes in on Local Annexation Issue

State Chimes in on Local Annexation Issue

The state is weighing-in against the plans to annex part of the town of Washington into Eau Claire. 

The Department of Administration yesterday said the move is “not in the public’s interest.”  The ruling from the state comes after Eau Claire’s Plan Commission voted Monday night against the annexation as well.  A local developer has been trying for three years to build a new subdivision in Orchard Hills, despite opposition from neighbors.  City leaders are going to vote on the annexation next week.
