Lapel - The Lapel Town Council will meet in special session Thursday, March 27, at the Eagles Lodge to discuss the latest hurdle in a quest to annex land.
During the March 20 meeting, council President Gary Shuck said the council must consider its options after an attempt to file for a supervoluntary annexation south of town failed to meet legal requirements, which includes support of all affected property owners.
Shuck said the town may instead pursue just a voluntary annexation, which requires a petition representing at least 51 percent of the landowners of the area.
Councilman Tim Munro, who has been working with a consultant on a feasibility study of the effort, said several more signatures were needed.
“We have 41 names on the petition. We need 73 to meet the 51 percent,” Munro said.
