Hospital land annexation pushed over hump by city councilmen

Legislation and extended discussions occupied most of the two and a half hour session of the city council last evening, which was attended by a large delegation of Christie Avenue residents.

Among the top items to get attention was the bill annexing the land of Norwalk's new hospital and Walter Hipp to the city. This was passed unanimously.

Another ordinance, which was placed on first reading, called for the annexation of the County Home property.

Attorney Herbert Freemen, present on behalf of the Norwalk Hospital Association, reported that Robert Berry, who owns property on the west side just south of the city limits, approached him to assist with the annexation of the property.

Mr. Freeman indicated that Dr. H.R. Bolman, whose property is partially beyond the city limits, might also be inclined to annex when he learns of the latest developments.
