Erda incorporation online public hearing set for Dec. 8

Petition sponsors to set council district boundaries and terms 

With the incorporation of Erda approved by voters, incorporation sponsors will hold a required public hearing as the process of starting up the new city moves forward.

During the election, the residents of the proposed Erda City not only voted to incorporate, they also selected to use the five-member council form of government and elect council members by district.

The incorporation petition sponsors are charged by state law with determining the number of council members to be elected by district, the city council district boundaries, and the initial terms of council members.

Due to current public health orders related to COVID-19, the required public hearing on these topics will be held online and by conference call on Dec. 8 at 7 p.m.

Directions and links for the public meeting can be found on the Facebook page “Incorporate ERDA.”
