Although at least a couple dozen residents of recently de-annexed subdivisions attended the public comments portion of last week’s Cadiz City Council meeting, most of them left before the council voted on several items relating to their neighborhoods. Many of these people lived in Wyandot Village and expressed interest in being put back in the city after Circuit Judge Dennis Foust their properties de-annexed.

The council first voted on the first reading of an ordinance allowing them to amend the 2007-2008 budget so they could pay back taxes to citizens living the de-annexed properties who included themselves in the class-action lawsuit against the city. $125,383.56 will be taken out of a transfer of certificate of deposit funds and placed in this year’s budget. The expenses will be increased to $123,104.16 to satisfy the litigation claims.

The council briefly discussed the voided ordinance of the annexation, which occurred on June 27. Rogers said the Trigg County Judge-Executive’s office had received a copy, as well as the sheriff’s office, County Clerk Wanda Thomas and Property Valuation Administrator Michael Bryan.
