Possible Vote In Decherd Would Have 2 Voters

An overflow crowd attended Tuesday night’s Decherd Planning Commission meeting. The only item on the agenda was annexing 181 acres of farmland for a proposed rock quarry on Greenhaw Road. Annexing the land would be an important first step to that end. The eight member commission voted to send the matter without recommendation to the Decherd Board of Mayor and Alderman, who will decide if a referendum vote should be held. According to city rules, it would be a referendum involving two voters, the people who own the land up for annexation. In this case it’s a husband and wife.
