BOONE, Iowa—The Boone City Council has voted 5-to-1 to resume work on an annexation study. The Council actually stopped the study several weeks ago, so Council Members could find out more about the annexation process. A preliminary report from the study identified areas the Council might want to consider for annexation. The focus has been on the industrial park on the east side of Boone. Mayor John Slight says the Council needs to have the completed study so they understand all aspects of possible annexation, whether it would be the industrial park or residential property on the west side of Boone. The study is expected to be completed by late spring.
