HENDERSON, Ky. (WEHT) – The town of Chandler recently completed the voluntary annexation of three land parcels totaling over 29 acres.

A news release says the Chandler town council voted unanimously, 5-0, for all three voluntary annexations. Officials say with a population of 3,693 at the 2020 census, Chandler is already the second largest community in Warrick County, after Boonville.
