ALBANY — The annexation into Albany of 1.48 acres was approved Tuesday by the Athens County Commissioners.

The owner of the property, G&H Diversified Properties, requested annexation of the land, which is located at the intersection of Route 50 and Meadowbrook Road. The site is on the opposite side of Meadowbrook from the Subway restaurant.

At a May public hearing, a spokesman for the owners said the intent is to put the site to a commercial use, but said after the meeting that he does not believe the landowners have a specific use lined up.

Albany Mayor Tim Kirkendall and Village Council President Neal Reynolds spoke at the public hearing and urged the commissioners to approve the annexation request.
