Discussion RE; step by step process for de-annexation for properties along West Boundary – process spelled out in Statute 42-3219 – Frank suggested that we have our attorney help with this. Fred declared that all incentives and costs for those owners should come from them and be paid by them. Boundary was established in 1968 when Association was formed and all owners at that time were aware of boundary and all purchasers since then should have been informed by their Title closings. The District has been approved by the Courts then and again in 1982 when we became a District, was published and approved by District Court. President Drinkard will inform those wishing to de-annex to form a committee and request in writing that we would approve, then they can proceed with de-annexation according to established rules- (DEQ @ IRWA) as applicable.
