TELL CITY, IN (WFIE) -

Tell City officials tell 14 News they want to expand city limits by Summer 2014.

Mayor Barbara Ewing said the Tell City Council has formally adopted a plan to annex an additional 1,700-acres of land.

Ewing said informational public hearings will be held on the annexation plan in February and March. It could be approved by June.

"It is not a high population-based annexation," said Mayor Ewing. "The City of Tell City is only looking to gain approximately between 500 and 600 people. It truly is an annexation that is positioning Tell City to move forward with growth and development. And we view this as an exciting time for our city."

She said new businesses have already contacted her office for development in the areas proposed for annexation.
