Bristow boundary annexation on hold

By J. D. Meisner Managing Editor.
 
The Bristow City Council continues to consider annexing a 90-mile long, 25 foot wide ribbon of land that envelops the City of Bristow in a rough 18 by 16 mile rectangle. While the annexation only includes the 25-foot wide strip of land at the outside perimeter of the rectangle, it's what is inside that perimeter that the city wants to protect. According to Mayor Ralph Barnett, by encircling a large area of land around Bristow by this 25-foot strip of annexed land, any utility assets that the city has installed, or may install in the future, in rural areas outside the city proper are protected from being claimed by outside rural water districts.
