KITE Advocate Slaff Writer City Council is scheduled to head for the hills again Monday night Emerald Hills and indications are lliey will be met by resi- dents of this area, and Broad Acres Subdivision as well, demanding full and im- mediate services for the taxes they will pay if they are annexed. A special session of the council has been set for 7 p.m. al the city hall to dis- cuss the annexation pro- posal, and one spokesman said ho expects residents of both areas to altend in force. Council first approached thc annexation issue last April when an ordinance was introduced for llic first of Ihree necessary readings. Opposition at that time brought about a delay until after the new city budget was drawn for the fiscal year which began on Oct. 1. This svas to satisfy de- mands from residents thai they be given a concrete in- tlicalion as lo liow soon thc cily might begin work In provide water and sewer ser- vices. Some was sub- sequently budgeted for ex- tension of water mains into cily plim Monday night, and meanwhile a resident of ISnicrald Hills said he also plans to take issue with the city about failure to move toward adequate fire pro- lection. The spokesman said Ihe cily has planned no action for (he current fiscal year lo acquire a new sub-divi- sion, fire equipment or per- sonnel which he feels will be needed. A temporary solution, he said, would be (o build on a fire station site which Iho cily already owns at the intersection of Mistletoe Avenue and Sam Houston Drive, even if this meant no more Ilian shifting personnel and equipment from (lie present Louis Street Suh- stalion. The long range solution really needed, however, "is (o acquire a site about a half-mile outside Ihe present cily limits" lo serve future growth in the area, the spokesman said.
