The vote to sell the school, or keep it as a public use or community building, is scheduled for February 25th, from 8AM to 8PM at the town hall.
WE NEED YOUR VOTE TO SAVE OUR SCHOOL. If you are not registered to vote, then the most important thing you can do right now is GET REGISTERED. Do so NOW by clicking this link, or downloading this file: voteform.pdf
YOU DID IT!!!! An overwhelming vote of 1334 NO's to just 23 YES votes!
THE SALE IS CANCELED - THE SCHOOL IS BACK TO BELONGING TO THE TOWN!
Stay tuned - next up - what to do with the school...
Postcards have ben sent out to every voting household in MountHope/Otisville. Vote is scheduled for Feb 25th from 8 am to 8 pm. With this special election it does not appear that we can have absentee ballots, so please try to get there to vote. This is very critical.
Signs are popping up everywhere which is great to see! We have a few signs left, so please do get one on your lawn....errr...snow pile.
The latest news is that most of the old board that voted to sell the school, has been replaced with new members as a result of our votes this past November.
The previous board HAD already accepted an offer on the property, had also already accepted a contract and a deposit. HOWEVER, if the community is opposed, we can, by petition, gather enough signatures to force this to a referendum vote. In plain english that means we gather signatures of voters in town, petition the county, and if successful they have to then put the sale to a public vote.
The county accepted our petition as valid and now we have a date of February 25th to have our community vote on this issue. Critical for all of you now is to make sure you are registered to vote, and to make sure you get to the town hall on FEBRUARY 25th and GET OUT AND VOTE.
