The Gibbon City Council continued to work through all the options concerning the infrastructure to the school and the annexation of property at its September 5th meeting. Supervisors Steve Herschman and Lyle Black were asked to attend the meeting to bring more clarity to the annexation of property now in Severance Township. The township had requested some revenue for lost taxes with the school purchasing 75.5 acres. Their request was for $400 per year for five years. For the other small property on the highway, the township had requested $100 for five years.
Roger Tabbert stated that regardless of whether Severance or the City owns the future school site, there will be no tax income. “So why would the City pay Severance?”
Tabbert stated that the other small property was different.
