The city of Fairbury is working on expanding their borders. On Tuesday the local governing body set March 3 at 7:30 p.m. as the time and date for a public hearing for a new annexation project.
According to city zoning administrator Laura Bedlan the pending project encompasses business and land along the city's northeast corridor.
"What we're looking at from a business standpoint is an area that takes in Countryside Vet Clinic, Ace Hardware, Fairbury Coop as well as the Fairbury Rural Fire building, the former Massey Ferguson dealership and land owned by Northgate Development," she said.
Bedlan said the hearing will be open for public comment by anyone, not just those who would be affected by the pending project.
"We've had a couple of people come in and ask some questions about this project but no one has been in and said they are opposed to it so far," she said.
