Roosevelt City Council has approved the annexation of a subdivision outside Roosevelt City limits that has been plagued for years with sewer issues. The Stonegate Subdivision began development in 2002 and by 2012, many homes were dealing with failing septic systems resulting in a moratorium from the health department in 2014. In December 2015, the Division of Environmental Quality recommended the Stonegate property owners pursue annexation into Roosevelt City to eventually connect to the Roosevelt sewer system. A petition from Stonegate residents was formally submitted to the city last March which started the process towards annexation. Roosevelt City Council approved the annexation during this week’s meeting. They also explored the funding options and potential costs to residents depending on what funding package is approved. The cost to expand and connect the sewer line to homes in Stonegate is estimated at around $4.8 million dollars. Certain fees will be charged to residents but amounts could vary greatly depending on the final funding agreement.
