Battle Ground, Fire District 3 work toward annexation vote
Officials opt to reduce utility tax if move approved

As Battle Ground and Fire District 3 officials continue to work toward a potential annexation vote, city officials reviewed a list of improvements or cuts to services if the vote takes place in 2020, as is expected. 

At the city council's Aug. 19 meeting, the council voted unanimously to reduce the city's utility tax rate by 10 percent if the annexation vote is approved.
