Annexation Public Hearing is Tonight in Fulton

Round one of the battle between the city of Fulton and town of Granby happens Monday night.

A public hearing begins at 7:00 p.m. in the Fulton Common Council chambers on the city’s plan to annex the land on which its wastewater treatment plant sits.

The plant sits in the town of Granby, along the Oswego River just north of the city.

City officials have said they’d like to stop paying more than $100,000 a year in property taxes on the plant.  They plan to claim that the treatment plant property can be annexed into the city because it sits “next” to city-owned property at Indian Head Point park, which is across the Oswego River along Route 481.

The Town of Granby has hired a lawyer, land use and zoning specialist Scott Chatfield of Marietta in Onondaga County, for the fight against annexation.
