In a memo to the assembly, while we recognize that the City of Soldotna has devoted a lot of time, funds, and effort into considering and developing its plan to annex adjacent property, we oppose implementing the plan without seeking voter approval. The affected property owners are not all voters, but all voters in the existing limits of the City of Soldotna and who reside in the proposed areas for annexation will be impacted by the annexation if it is approved. These are all borough residents and in our view the assembly has a duty to consider this issue and convey to the city its support of these residents’ concerns, wrote Pierce and Blakeley.
