Chelsea City Council approves more property annexations

CHELSEA – The Chelsea City Council approved three ordinances for land annexation in a regular meeting on Tuesday, June 2.

Two ordinances pertained to annexation requests submitted by property owners for portions of a parcel located on Brasher Drive and consisting of 5 acres, while the other ordinance pertained to an annexation request submitted by the owners of a parcel located on Shelby County 32, also consisting of 5 acres.

“The reason we had two ordinances with the same names is this property is not only contiguous to Chelsea, but it is also contiguous to Pelham,” Mayor Tony Picklesimer said of the Brasher Drive property. “When that is the case, the annexations are done half of the property at a time.”
