Among the items that come to mind are; street condition, curbing, sewer <br />system, and snow removal. While I am not saying that these hurdles are insurmountable, the <br />City is concerned about how they would be overcome. <br />It has not been, nor do I anticipate it becoming the policy of the City of Rexburg to allow <br />the terms of annexation to be determined by residents who are subject to annexation <br />without conditions. The City Council feels that it would establish a very poor precedent if <br />terms such as those contained in your request were entertained. <br />Should any of the interested property owners contiguous to the current City of Rexburg <br />corporate limits wish to request annexation without conditions, our planning and zoning <br />office would be happy to help them through the process. Again, thank you for your interest <br />in becoming a part of the City of Rexburg. <br />Sincerel , <br />haven Larsen <br />Mayor <br />Shawn Lazsen, Mayor 12 N. Center Rexburg. ID 83~1d0 P. O.
