North East Residents Reject $3.15M Bond Package For New Town Hall, Garage

NORTH EAST, N.Y. -- Residents in North East have overwhelmingly voted to reject a $3.15 million bond package to finance a new town hall and highway garage, according to unofficial results released Tuesday by the Dutchess County Board of Elections.

The results show that 427 voted against the referendum while just 129 voted in favor.

The proposal involves acquiring two parcels along Route 22 that are currently used by Dutchess County Diesels. A pair of buildings on the premisses would be renovated for use as the new town facilities.

The bond package would have paid for the purchase and construction measures.

The town has argued that new buildings are necessary due to space constraints and structural issues with current facilities.
