ONLY ONE POLLING LOCATION – SATURDAY MARCH 10 2012 -9 am to 8 pm
WE URGE YOUR YES VOTE ON THIS ISSUE
This Saturday, March 10, the town will hold a referendum to get approval to replace the High School auditorium roof and make necessary interior repairs. You may remember, the roof was damaged from the heavy snows we experienced a year ago. While the repair job will cost $2.5 million, almost all that cost is covered by an insurance payment ($2.3 million of it). Our Town Charter requires voter approval even though insurance covers the repair. It would be very problematic if this allocation was rejected by voters since it can’t move forward without a yes vote and would slow everything down.
Please come out and vote YES so we can replace the High School Auditorium roof and make the auditorium usable again.
VOTING ON DIFFERENT DAY – ONLY ONE LOCATION – DIFFERENT TIMES THAN USUAL
The vote will be Saturday, from 9 am to 8pm. Voting will ONLY be held at one polling spot, Town Hall 275 Broad Street.
All registered voters and property owners according to lists are eligible to vote.
Windsor Democrats voted to support the referendum to get the roof fixed m especially since there is so little cost to taxpayers. We have initiated reminder calls so people become aware of the special voting and unusual location and schedule -
PLEASE VOTE YES ON THIS QUESTION
“SHALL THE TOWN OF WINDSOR APPROPRIATE $2,525,000 FOR THE WINDSOR HIGH SCHOOL ROOF REPLACEMENT AND AUDITORIUM REPAIR PROJECT, AND AUTHORIZE THE ISSUANCE OF BONDS AND NOTES TO FINANCE THE PORTION OF THE APPROPRIATION NOT DEFRAYED FROM AN ESTIMATED $2,340,000 IN INSURANCE PROCEEDS?”
Roof replacement cost = $2,525,000 – insurance payment paid back to Windsor = $2,340,000 – actual cost to the town is $185,000
The net outcome has a minimal impact on budget.
