City Council to talk annexation contracts, utility fees during closed session

The executive session, which is closed to the public, is slated for 6 p.m. at City Hall, 1655 First St.

The East Face project is on the east slopes of the northern Elkhorn Mountains, mainly from the Anthony Lakes Highway north toward Ladd Canyon and the Grande Ronde Valley.

It includes about 48,000 acres of public land, mostly national forest, with about 1,200 acres of BLM ground.
