Village dissolution raised again in Champlain

(Continued)

If the measure were to fail, dissolution can't be brought up again for at least four years.

 

'LOSS OF IDENTITY'

In November, voters in the Village of Malone shot down a proposition that would have dissolved that municipality into the Town of Malone. Grant funding had paid for a study on the issue.

Villagers in Keeseville vote Jan. 22, 2013, on whether to keep or dissolve government there. A committee studied the issue for months before a petition mandating the vote was presented to the Village Board.

Martin says dissolution would lead to a loss of identity as village residents.

"I think a lot of people like to be able to say they live in the Village of Champlain," he said.
