TROY — Troy City Council will consider the annexation process for three city owned properties at its regular meeting at 7 p.m. Monday at City Hall.

Last week, members of the law and ordinance committee agreed to move forward with a positive recommendation for the ordinance (O-37-2015) to begin the annexation process for three city-owned properties including the recent purchase of the 117-acre Huelskamp Farm for the future expansion of Duke Park.

The committee agreed to move forward with a recommendation to council to annex the following properties:

• 4.584 acre parcel located to the north of Treasure Island Park, donated by Hobart Brothers Co.

• 0.283 acre parcel located just north of the area donated by Hobart Brothers Co., parcel donated by Dr. Jason Johnston.

• 117.278 acre parcel, formerly known as the Huelskamp farm.

Council has one resolution on its agenda for the annual funding of the Miami County General Health District. The request is for $335,767.69.

The health and safety committee agreed to move forward with a positive recommendation in regards to the 2016 funding of the Miami County Health District. According to the committee report, Troy’s funding is based on the millage equivalent as paid by 22 of the 24 political subdivisions in the County for public health services. Troy’s payment is funded from the General Fund. The 2015 Miami County Public Health funding would be $335, 767.69, which is an increase of 1.51 percent from the 2015 funding.

Other ordinances include two right-of-way dedications in the city of Troy:

• A dedication of right-of-way along the east side of Experiment Farm Road, just south of 1501 Experiment Farm Road. (The Avenue). The right-of-way to be dedicated is 2.451 acres of existing Inlot 6898. The new replat will encompass a 73.230 acre parcel along the east side of Experiment Farm Road. (across the road to the east of Vectren and the city of Troy garage). The applicant is an engineering firm Haley-Dusa.

• A dedication of right-of-way along the south side of W. Market Street and State Route 55 (across from Horizon Court West), west of Barnhart Road.

The right-of-way to be dedicated is .189 acres of existing Inlot 7159. The new replat will encompass a 14.376-acre parcel along the south side of West Market Street and State Route 55 and the west side of Barnhart Road (south of 1200 Barnhart Road). The applicant is Brumbaugh Engineering. The dedication is for the property owner Segna Inc.’s planned expansion.

The committee agreed to move forward with both dedications with an emergency designation for the Barnhart request due to the project’s timeline.
