The Kalona City Council is looking to take the next steps to annex the Shiloh property. The annexation of approximately 600 acres was discussed at their council meeting on Monday. City Administrator Ryan Schlabaugh tells KCII News what the timeline now looks like for officially annexing the property, “So the annexation process, now it’s kind of twofold, the annexation and then there’s a development piece. The annexation piece has the potential to be signed off on and go to the state secretary for formal approval in mid-April, should the Council and the public allow that. That’s kind of where we’re heading with respect to timeline. We’ll see kind of how it plays out here in the next few weeks.” The council set a public hearing to be held on April 6th at 7 p.m. at the Kalona City Hall. Then on April 13th a special meeting will include a conversation with the developers on the final steps to take in the annexation process. That meeting will take place at 7 p.m. at Kalona City Hall. Schlabaugh says the April 6th meeting will potentially be online due to social distancing recommendations from Governor Kim Reynolds and the CDC.
