The meeting is going to be held on Monday, Sept. 26 at 6:30 p.m., at the County Road and Bridge.

There are people who agree with the Town purchase of the building, and there are people who do not agree with the purchase the building. Please make time to attend this meeting and make your wishes known. During a July Town Board meeting, citizens requested that the issue be put on a ballot and allow the citizens to vote on it. The Trustees, by a nod of heads agreed to put it on a ballot and allow the citizens to vote on it. Since that meeting, certain members of the town board seem to be of the opinion that the Trustees should vote on whether the Town should purchase the building, instead of allowing the citizens to vote on it.

It is very important that residents come and let your thoughts, ideas and wishes be known.
