To Waitsfield Voters and Citizens:
An error in the notice procedures was recently discovered that has led to the cancellation of the September 9 water bond vote. After much deliberation during a special emergency meeting on September 2, the select board voted to reschedule it to coincide with the November 4 general election.
A special bond vote on October 7 was considered, but there was strong sentiment that a November 4 vote would allow for greater voter participation and cause less disruption of town services to citizens. The select board urges citizens to watch for upcoming opportunities to continue to learn the details of the proposed project.
We regret the inconvenience to the many citizens interested in the outcome of this proposal. We especially wish to thank the voters who took the time to vote by absentee ballot prior to this announcement.
Town Administrator Valerie Capels and Waitsfield Select Board members Charles Hosford, Roy Hadden, Kate Williams, William Parker and Paul Hartshorn
