The city gained 40 acres of land onTuesday (Aug. 29) after property owners stated Cave Springs failed to provide them with required services.
Rogers’ City Council unanimously approved a request from the Georgia M. Fletcher Revocable Trust to have 40 acres of their land leave Cave Springs and annex into Rogers.
The owners have 80 acres altogether and 40 are already in Rogers.
They asked Cave Springs to provide them with sewer services and didn’t receive a response for more than 30 days. Rogers city officials have said they will be able to provide the services to the property owner, said Bill Watkins, the attorney representing the owners.
The Cave Springs city attorney also admitted the city could not provide the services and they do not object with having us move this over to Rogers
The property received an agricultural zoning in Rogers.
