Silver Lake council takes steps for possible Dollar General store

As the holiday shopping season is fast approaching, the Silver Lake City Council heard of the possibility of the development of a Dollar General store.
The council reviewed a petition for annexation for just under three acres of land from property owner Robert Shamla.
The petition came to the council after a recommendation from the planning commission to approve the annexation and zone the property commercial in the B2-Highway Business District.
The property, currently in Hale Township, borders the city limits on the north side of  Highway 7, west of the Cenex station.
The city has been in contact with the developer on the proposed building plans.
City Clerk Kerry Venier has met with the Hale Township Board in regards to the annexation of the property. The response was favorable. The city will reimburse the township approximately $300 in taxes.
The Council set a public hearing for Dec. 21 at 7 p.m. in the council chambers in the lower level of the Silver Lake Auditorium.
A public hearing is required in accordance with city ordnances and state statutes.
