Godfrey's mayor is hoping annexation proceedings on a local industry will move forward at tonight's Village Board meeting.  Hanley Industries on Seminary Road is currently a part of Foster Township, but could soon become a part of Godfrey, assuming annexation moves forward tonight.

The annexation has been tabled twice as both sides get the legal paperwork in order.  Godfrey Mayor Mike McCormick tells The Big Z Hanley is a solid industrial business that he would be proud to welcome to the village.

He says Hanley brings 50 jobs to the village.  There won't be a tax advantage for 10 years, as the property taxes would still go to Foster Township for the next ten years following annexation.
