Town to look at boundary adjustment

The Town of Pulaski will hire a Maryland consulting company to look into the benefits of a boundary adjustment.
Pulaski Town Council voted last night to hire TischlerBise, Inc. of Bethesda, Md. to conduct an analysis of a potential expansion of the town’s boundaries.
However, Town Manager John Hawley stresses the boundary adjustment under consideration is not an annexation.
“Annexation and boundary adjustments are two different things,” he said. While annexations are court-driven expansions of territory, he noted that boundary adjustments are written agreements between two jurisdictions that agree to the adjustment.
In this case, it would be an agreement between the Town of Pulaski and Pulaski County.
Hawley said the county is aware of the town’s desire to expand its boundaries, and even helped to select the consulting firm from four responses to a request for proposal.
The areas the town is considering taking into the town system are the Route 99 corridor out to the Interstate 81 intersection and Route 11. He said the Route 11 area under consideration would extend the town limits at least out to Pulaski Country Club.
As part of the study, Hawley said the consulting firm will develop a “fiscal impact analysis” and determine what beneficial or detrimental effects the adjustment would have for the town and the county.
Before the adjustment could be approved it would have to be beneficial for both sides and both sides would have to agree to the changes.
The cost of the study is $32,700, which includes all expenses.
