Tetonia City Council to file a brief answer to Egbert complaint
At their monthly meeting, the Tetonia City Council authorized City Attorney Bart Birch to file a brief answer on behalf of the City in response to the Egbert’s recent challenge of the voter referendum reversing their controversial 267-acre annexation. Birch’s answer will simply state that the city residents who petitioned to put the annexation on the May ballot are a necessary party to the action, and they must be permitted to intervene. In layman’s terms, filing this answer will indicate that Tetonia is in the game, but sitting on the sidelines. The city’s answer will be filed by the end of this month.
