City retains control of fringe area

Floyd Commissioners unanimously agree to appeal decision

(Continued)

NEW ALBANY —

The county had claimed that sewer service was insufficient to meet the state guidelines of providing a municipal service. 

According to the court record, New Albany began exercising control of planning and zoning in the area in 1972. New Albany has the authority to hold zoning and planning control in the fringe territory because it has followed the necessary state statutes, according to the ruling. 

“Based on Floyd County’s current financial status, they are probably relieved that they do not have to take on the additional expenses of planning and zoning in this area,” Mayor Jeff Gahan stated in the news release. “Just as we have for the last 200 years, we are determined to plan the strong and responsible growth of the city of New Albany. Hopefully, in the future, we will have the cooperation of Floyd County elected officials.” 

Fringe residents aren’t allowed to vote in New Albany elections.
