The Village of Sunrise Beach is on the move. At their last meeting for the Village Trustees, under a closed session, a draft resolution for annexation was approved. According to Sunrise Beach Trustee Charlie Bott, there are multiple residents wanting to be annexed into the Village limits for the purpose of connecting to the city’s utility system which prompted the city to examine the pro’s and con’s of the idea. The annexation of the properties included will be read for the public at 6pm on January 5th during the Planning and Zoning commission meeting at city hall. If the commission approves, the board then will make a final decision on January 12th during their public meeting. In other news the city approved giving a 2% raise to county court clerk Jeffann Bullock and a 3% raise to city clerk Jenni Hamm. Officials say they are close to completing the water rate analysis for the Phase 3 water project that will connect 122 new customers in Castle Gardens and Lucky Strike. The board will be holding a public hearing on Monday February 2nd for that project. And the sewer department reported they have about $125,000 remaining from a state Grant for Phase 1 of the sewer system, to which they are looking to use before the end of the year. If not use, the money would be going back to the state of Missouri. In other news the police department reported taking 164 calls throughout November.
