BUTLER TWP. — The City of Union is poised to annex over 500 acres in Butler Township if two petitions filed late Friday afternoon are approved by the Montgomery County Commissioners.
One petition contains 448.64 acres and is signed by David R. and Elizabeth A. Staub along with Richard L. Oaks of R.H. Oaks Farms, LLC.
The second petition is for 73.38 acres and is signed by property owners David L. Smith, Cynthia R. Smith who is acting as Executor of the estate of Scott A. Smith, and Richard P. and Debra L. Thies.
The proposed annexation is bordered by Jackson Road on the north, Frederick Pike on the west, Dog Leg Road on the east, and National Road (U.S. 40) on the south. Around 70 percent of the proposed annexation area is owned by the City of Dayton who, based on the petitions on file, is not a party to the annexation request.
A message has been left with the City of Dayton Communications and Public Affairs office for comment.
Butler Township Board of Trustees President Mike Lang had no official comment on Monday afternoon but said the annexation would likely be addressed at the board’s regularly scheduled meeting at 7 p.m. on Monday.
The Union City Council agenda for Monday includes only two items – ordinances adopting a statement indicating the services of the city will provide to the annexed territory.
