Commissioners OK annexations

By Cecilia Fox -

MIAMI COUNTY — At their meeting Tuesday, the Miami County Commissioners approved the annexation of two properties to the city of Troy.

The first annexation was of 117 acres from Staunton Township to the city. The city purchased the Huelskamp farm property this past summer for $1.5 million.

This property, which is adjacent to Duke Park, will be home to several new baseball diamonds.

The city also petitioned for the annexation of a nearly 5-acre property from Concord Township. This parcel of land is north of Treasure Island Park, Troy’s Director of Public Service and Safety Patrick Titterington said. The land was donated to the city by Hobart Brothers Co.

The area will likely be reverted to meadows, Titterington said.

In other business, the commissioners approved the purchase of an automatic ballot maintenance module at a cost of $6,283. This module will allow the voter registration system to interface with the Ballot on Demand system.

The commissioners also approved an archaeological survey for the village of Potsdam flood and drainage facilities project at a cost of $1,976.
