Annexation Policy Update

On Tuesday, April 26, MAT Executive Director Jeff Krueger and Counsel Steve Fenske testified at the Minnesota Senate’s Local Government Policy Committee in support of several important annexation fairness proposals. SF 1927 (Anderson) specifies annexation by contract (“orderly annexation”) with an agreement by both parties and a city not part of the agreement cannot take property that is already subject to the agreement. SF 1969 (Kiffmeyer) says orderly annexation should consider landowners’ wishes and allow residents a vote on whether they will be annexed.
