>County OKs Alamo signatures

The county Elections Department certified the Alamo Incorporation Movement gathered valid signatures for at least 25 percent of Alamo voters this week. The department stopped counting at about 2,760 signatures, although AIM provided about 3,115 of the 9,820 registered voters.

"We are delighted and grateful that the Elections Department reached such a quick conclusion," said Vicki Koc, president of AIM.

The next step is for the Local Agency Formation Commission to select a consulting firm to conduct a comprehensive fiscal analysis of Alamo cityhood. If the study shows it's possible, along with the other steps LAFCO must take, a vote will then occur.
