Keeseville dissolution plan up for vote today

KEESEVILLE — The fate of the Village of Keeseville turns on the tally from today’s public vote, set for noon to 9 p.m. in the Village Hall.

The Dissolution Plan approved by the Village Board is up for vote. If it passes, the municipal government will cease to exist on Dec. 31, 2014. If it fails, the village will continue to exist.

The public had voted in January in favor of dissolution. A petition filed with the Village Board forced the public referendum on the Dissolution Plan.

The Press-Republican will post the results online as soon as they are available tonight.
