Where we live: Lancaster


The School District’s Meet the Candidates’ Night featuring five candidates running for two seats in a hotly contested school board race is from 7 to 8:30 p.m. Tuesday in the auditorium of the High School, 1 Forton Drive.

Control of the board is at stake, with strong infighting between two new board members backed by Redskins mascot supporters battling a five-member pro-administration bloc.

Depending on who wins the election, the current 5-2 board dynamic could shift to control by the administration’s critics.

This week:

• The Town Board meets in a work session at 6:30 p.m. Monday, followed by its regular meeting at 7 p.m. in Town Hall, 21 Central Ave.

The Village Board meets at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday in committee to discuss proposed FEMA flood maps and certification and accreditation of levees. The board meets in council chambers, Municipal Building, 5423 Broadway.

• The Village Board meets in a work session at 5:30 p.m. Thursday in the Municipal Building.
