The Hyrum City Council will hold a public hearing on Thursday, April 20, at 6:30 p.m. with regard to the proposed annexation of 182.39 acres more or less of real property located between Highway 101 and 400 North at approximately 840 East to 1375 East in Hyrum. The acreage’s location is currently under the jurisdiction of unincorporated Cache County and is part of a Jack B. Parsons Companies’ gravel pit that has been operating in the area for many years.
The petition to annex the property was filed by Legrand Johnson Construction (a.k.a. Kilgore Companies) and Jack B. Parsons Companies (JBP). Hyrum City Administrator Ron Salvesen said the proposal has not been contested thus far and is essentially an effort to streamline land management.
“There are already plans for the future of the gravel pit, and this will not change those,” he said. “It just brings them on to Hyrum City’s power and water and will give the city a small sales tax benefit.”
Salvesen said JBP’s batch and concrete plants moved from Logan to Hyrum last year, and Legrand Johnson already has a shop in the city.
“It makes sense for them to have everything in Hyrum so they are under one government’s supervision instead of being compartmentalized into two,” he said.
The public hearing will be held in the Hyrum City Council Chambers at 60 West Main in Hyrum. A copy of the impacted property’s description may be reviewed at the Hyrum City Office weekdays between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. or at <a href=”http://www.hyrumcity.org/”>www.hyrumcity.org</a>.
