The Holtville City Council recently accepted facilities for an adult daycare center and is taking steps to annex areas adjacent to the city, according to City Manager John Jordan.

As a follow-up to an earlier decision to approve an adult daycare center, which is to be built on Grape Court in the east section of the city, the council formally accepted facilities donated by Valley Independent Bank, according to Jordan.

"This had already been decided on previously. This just made it official," said Jordan.

According to Jordan, the city is in the process of annexing Desert View Estates, west of the city along the Alamo River. The matter is pending approval by the county's Local Agency Formation Commission and expected to go through in six to nine months.

Jordan had said in an earlier interview that the city was considering another annexation north of the city. Fifty homeowners in that area were sent letters inviting them to attend a meeting to discuss the matter. However, few responded. He said the city is not planning to press the issue.

To be incorporated into the city property owners in the annexed area would have to pay taxes associated with the process.

In other matters, Jordan said Pete Mellinger was honored with a plaque for his more than 30 years on the city's Planning Commission.
