Owner of Big Fella’s has withdrawn plans to annex properties in northeast Aberdeen for now

ABERDEEN, S.D.(HubCityRadio)- The Aberdeen City Council Monday night resumed discussion on the potential of annexation of properties in northeast Aberdeen brought up by the owner of Big Fella’s, Stacy Gossman.

City Manager Joe Gaa provided an update since the last meeting three weeks ago.

City Attorney Ron Wager described the resolution that went along with it.

Stacy Gossman made a decision of what to do with these locations for now.

Gossman would pay for the studies and provide an update to the council at a later time.

Wager still wanted the council to vote on this resolution to be put on the record for the future.

Councilman David Novstrup was not comfortable with the resolution after Gossman withdrew.

Councilwoman Erin Fouberg feels this should made as an ordinance instead of a resolution.

The resolution was passed on a 7-2 vote with Novstrup & Fouberg both opposing.
