Presumably you are interested in this because your neighborhood is affected somehow?

Yep, that's me in the pushpin just to the right of the picture of Renton City Hall at the foot of  Benson Hill.  It also gives me an excuse to further my 4D awareness of the mapping of my reality.  Did you notice how i used a transparent gif to make the map  appear to stand out starkly against it's environment?

The council unanimously approved the annexation of a 2,400-acre chunk of the Benson Hill area between Renton and Fairwood. Voters in the area of roughly 17,000 people voted 66 percent to 34 percent in the Nov. 6 general election to annex to the city.

The area will become a part of the city on March 8. The city will hire 90 employees to serve the area to provide services in the area each year is estimated at about $9 million.

The King County Council has approved $1.7 million to go to the City of Renton to help with the transition costs of annexing the Benson Hill area.

The legislation was approved unanimously at Monday's County Council meeting.

Voters in the roughly 4.2-square-mile Benson Hill area between Renton and Fairwood and northern Kent voted to annex to Renton in the November general election, effective on March 1.

The Renton City Council approved the interlocal agreement with the county in November and the city's 2008 budget includes a plan to provide services to roughly 17,000 new citizens starting on March 1. The plan includes hiring about 90 new city employees.

... They 17,000 should be fairly accurate because they sent around census takers door to door.  One wonders if any employees are transfering from the county to the city to fill those 90 new jobs.  Perhaps some patrolman ... now we will blue cars rather than white county cars, but won't see any of those untill March.  I did see a Renton building inspector's car driving around the neighborhood.
