AN19-008

BACKGROUND:
This ordinance approves the acceptance of certain territory (AN19-008) by the city of Columbus and authorizes its transfer from Plain Township to Montgomery Township per an annexation agreement between the City and the Township.

The annexation agreement also requires that territory annexed to the City of Columbus from Plain Township be transferred to Montgomery Township.
