ELKHART — The Elkhart City Council will receive the second group of annexation proposals Monday.

The council is expected to start reviewing the first four annexations areas next month before the second group will be reviewed.

The second group includes four areas known as C.R. 6 and S.R. 19; C.R. 6 and C.R. 11; Mishawaka Road and S.R. 19; and C.R. 1 and Old U.S. 20. The Mishawaka Road tract is the biggest of the 16 initially proposed by Mayor Dick Moore.

The first four areas the council will consider are a tract of land near the municipal airport; C.R. 6 and C.R. 15; C.R. 17 and Middlebury Street and an area known as Borg Road and Pierina Drive. Formal hearings for those areas have not yet been scheduled.

Also, a formal proposal to appropriate $175,566 for three positions that are part of the downtown revitalization effort known as SoMa will be introduced. The council approved the tentative plan during the 2014 budget hearings.

The council will also elect new officers.

The meeting at 229 S. Second St., in council chambers will begin at 7 p.m.
