Meeteetse annexation approved

CODY (WNE) — A proposed annexation that will increase the size of Meeteetse by more than 70% moved forward last week following a 3-2 vote by the Town Council on May 4.

The question of whether to annex 390.7 acres into the town limits proved divisive among council members.

Mayor J.W. “Bill” Yetter and council members Eric Scott and Josh Blake voted for the measure, while Corey Guthrie and Dustin Taylor voted against it.

Yetter said the annexation would have significant benefits for the town.

“The benefit to the town is that we have room for development,” he said.
