Champlain dissolution petition affirmed

SIZE OF GOVERNMENT

Triller feels the village has rapidly declined in strength and services in recent years and that residents would be better off merging with the town.

“This village virtually has nothing ... and what are we getting out of it?” he questioned.

“It’s got to go. We’ve got to start minimizing government.”

Though some residents support dissolution, others, including Martin, feel the village is moving forward and should remain an entity.

Martin said dissolution could result in higher taxes and water and sewer rates for residents.

With just weeks until the vote, both sides are reaching out to residents, encouraging them to learn more about the process.

Anyone interested can attend the Feb. 6 informational meeting at the Village Office.

“It’ll be interesting,” Triller said. “I’d love to see the place packed.”
