    HEBRON ESTATES - It’s Christmas time in the city of Hebron Estates; All is calm, all is bright.
    Guests at the city’s December city commission meeting saw the newly placed community center sign in full display.
    The new sign, placed by Bill Riley Construction, replaces the previous sign that was knocked down and destroyed by a vehicle during a traffic accident.
    On the business side, the commission approved an annexation of property adjoining Cedar Creek belonging to the Bailey Family Farm.
    Mayor Jerry Clark first mentioned a possible annexation of the property in February, citing a clean-up of city boundaries.
    After months of surveying by Brad Armstrong, an ordinance was prepared and first presented at the November meeting.
    In other business:
    - City commissioners were sworn in at the end of the December meeting.
    Commissioners Russell Forshee, Kathy Merrifield and James Tucker will return in 2013 along with new commissioner Bob Denner.
    Commissioner David Allen did not seek re-election.
    - The Hebron Estates January commission meeting has been cancelled due to the holidays. The next commission meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, Feb. 5, 7 p.m. at the city community center on Birkland Blvd. The public is invited to attend.
