ELMA TOWN BOARD URGES BIG REFERENDUM TURNOUT

Elma Town Board members Wednesday urged all registered town voters to turn out for Wednesday's referendum that will decide whether land and a partially constructed building on Bowen Road will be purchased for $140,000 for use as a senior citizen community center.

Councilman George Blair Jr. said he hoped all residents would turn out to vote even if they are not directly affected by the center. He said he wanted the results of the referendum to be the opinion of a large portion of the community. Voting will be from noon to 9 p.m. in four consolidated polling places: the Elma Library, Elma Meadows Clubhouse, Jamison Road Fire Hall and St. Vincent de Paul's school.

The board approved drainage districts -- one at 7100 Seneca St. for Multisport & Fitness and the other at 611 Bullis Road -- after public hearings.

The board gave permission to Building Inspector Gerald Barry to prosecute an East Aurora contractor for violations at a Clinton Street site.
