Annexation hearing continued... again

PASCO, Wash. - Residents of the doughnut hole in Pasco will have to wait another week to find out if a lawsuit filed against the city will be upheld.

A hearing was scheduled for Monday afternoon in Franklin County Superior Court but was continued for the second time in as many weeks until the 29th.

Members of the Citizens for Lifestyle Preservation group were in the court Monday. The attorney representing the group explained why the hearing was pushed back again.

"There was a little ticky procedural issue that was not properly followed. The hearing for today was not confirmed in a timely manner. Court rules say it has to be confirmed, in this case, last Thursday by noon and that didn't happen," said attorney Laurie Magan.

Magan said she believed it was minor clerical issue that caused this last delay. The city has filed a motion to dismiss the issue but Magan says she's working under the premise that the motion has been denied.
