ELMA TO VOTE ON TOWN HALL FINANCING

The Elma Town Board has scheduled a vote June 12 on financing for construction of the new Town Hall.

The vote will be held from noon to 8 p.m. in the Senior Citizens Center, 3007 Bowen Road. The vote is limited to property owners who also are registered voters.

In February, the board voted to borrow up to $1.9 million. However, a petition filed March 5 by resident Charles Hunt set the wheels in motion for a referendum.

The facility is targeted for 1600 Bowen Road. The town has $2.4 million on hand for the project and would finance the $1.9 million over a 20-year period.

Supervisor John Dudek said that if the financing proposal is defeated, the town would turn to bond-anticipation notes, which would have to be paid off in five years.

In other matters, a public hearing is scheduled at 8 p.m. June 4 on a proposed patio home subdivision for senior citizens on a 22-acre site off Rice Road. The project would feature 160 homes built by Marrano Builders.
