Boundary Review Board Gives Burien’s Annexation of ‘Area Y’ Final OK
On Thursday, Feb. 16, the Washington State Boundary Review Board for King County reached a final decision approving Burien’s annexation request of the North Highline, according to a press release from the city, which continues:
The next step is for the City Council to pass a resolution confirming the Board’s decision and requesting that King County set an election date, which could be in August or November 2012.
The City Council is waiting for the state Legislature to approve a state budget before requesting an election.
The Council has indicated it will not proceed with the annexation if the current state tax credit that helps cities provide services to newly annexed areas tax credit is reduced or eliminated from the state budget.
