Oakwood OKs annexation
Placeholder Image

Oakwood City Council voted Monday to annex nearly 11 acres on Thurmon Tanner Parkway allowing for the relocation of a company that makes and installs pneumatic tube systems.

Aerocom, the U.S. distributor for Germany-based Aerocom GmbH, plans to move from a leased space in the Oakwood Industrial South Park off Rafe Banks Drive to larger offices — about 12,000 square feet — in the burgeoning Tanners Creek Business Park along Thurmon Tanner.

The company has been in Oakwood for about 10 years.

In other business during a called meeting, the council voted to set general election qualifying for Aug. 26-28 at City Hall, 4035 Walnut Circle. Residents can file appropriate paperwork 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Qualifying fees are $324, mayor’s seat currently held by Lamar Scroggs; and $216, City Council seats currently held by Sam Evans and Ron McFarland.

The election is set for Nov. 5.
