City of Lead Considers Annexation of 110 Acres of County Land

The City of Lead is considering annexing 110 acres of Lawrence County Land near the Sanford Laboratory, reports the Black Hills Pioneer. Annexing the county land would help facilitate upcoming excavation work being done at the Sanford Lab’s Ross Shaft.

Annexing the land would allow the city to administer building permits variances and easements on the land. The annexation will be presented at an upcoming commission meeting and will be approved through resolution. At the initial discussion, no commissioners expressed any objections to the annexation.
