A few quotes on the proposed annexation from the article:
“The city isn’t buying Shiloh,” Schlabaugh said. “Annexation does not mean ownership. We’re not looking to write checks.”
"Current discussions between Shiloh and the city involve Shiloh requesting a voluntary annexation of its 200-acre property into the city of Kalona."
"The current proposal would have the city taking ownership of the water and sewer system, as well as other already existing facilities on the property."
"Other facilities included in the discussion are the main building, an amphitheater and recreational facilities."
“This would give us an asset we would never build in a lifetime,” Schlabaugh said."
"Shiloh would maintain ownership of undeveloped parts of the property with the idea to sell to developers."
