Roosevelt City Annexation Opens Door for Funding

Roosevelt City Council’s approval for annexation of Stonegate isn’t a guarantee that the subdivision will receive sewer services but it opens the door for the City to pursue funding. Applications for the next funding cycle of the CIB are due by the end of the month and Roosevelt City is busy preparing the application which they hope will provide the funds for the needed sewer construction project. “So far I’ve only heard positive feedback about the annexation of Stonegate,” shares Roosevelt City Manager Ryan Snow. “Many in that area see this is the next step and are excited that the City is willing. At this point, sewer is still not guaranteed but we couldn’t do much about it until they were annexed into the City.” Now the City can move forward and what happens next is at the mercy of the funding agencies. DEQ funding may also be available for the project. While annexations are not entirely common, Roosevelt City is exploring another annexation, this one in the North Crescent area. The City has some property in the area, explains Snow, and it may be annexed into Roosevelt City with the invitation of the surrounding properties to join as well.
