Macomb, IL – The City of Macomb is prepared to grow a little larger. Aldermen have approved agreements to annex four pieces of property once they're contiguous to the city. All four parcels are to the west and located along the new water line to Colchester. The properties include the 4-H center and some homes. Macomb hopes to improve its census figures as it adds property to the west. No one spoke on the annexation plans during a public hearing held at the city council's latest meeting.
