BUTLER TOWNSHIP — Two Butler Township property owners have petitioned the Montgomery County Commissioners to be annexed into the City of Union. The annexation request is for 189.66 acres.

Butler Township Administrator Kim Lapensee announced the annexation to the Township Trustees at Monday’s regular meeting, saying she had just received the document on Monday.

“Obviously we are disappointed,” said Lapensee. “We have been trying to keep Butler Township intact for some time and the City of Union seems to be on a mission to destroy Butler Township. Unfortunately, there’s nothing the Township can do about it because state law favors the City of Union.”

The property is directly north of the Dayton International Airport and bounded by Old Springfield Road on the south, Dog Leg Road on the west, County Line Road on the north, and Peters Pike on the east.

The petition is signed by Richard P. and Debra L. Thies of Englewood are one of the parties, and the other is R.H. Oaks Farms, LLC and represented by Manager Richard L. Oaks.
