New Lebanon voters reject town hall proposal

Dec 16, 2010 12:46 pm
Paul Crossman in The Chatham Courier reports voters in New Lebanon have for a second time rejected a proposal to renovate and expand the Town Hall, 191 no votes to 128 yes votes. At the first vote in late June, a similar measure was defeated 182 to 88, out of the 1,400 registered voters in New Lebanon, Crossman reports. “I was disappointed in the outcome because I thought we had the best deal for our residents to preserve a historic structure and to have a building we could be proud of,” said Supervisor Margaret Robertson. “In the next two years, New Lebanon is going to be booming and we wanted a Town Hall that could serve our needs.” The $724,100 project included no new taxes for residents.
