Annual Town Election

The Annual Town Election to vote for local officials will be Saturday June 2, 2018.  The polls open at 8:00 a.m. and close at noon. 
Voters will also be asked the following: 

"Question 1:
Shall the Town of Westhampton be allowed to exempt from the provisions of proposition two and one-half, so called, the amounts required to pay for the bond issued in order to purchase a bucket loader for the Highway Department?"

           "YES"                        "NO"

Explanation:
At Annual Town Meeting Voters authorized the purchase of a bucket loader for the highway department and to pay for it through borrowing, contingent on passage of a debt exclusion ballot question.  A vote YES approves payments for the borrowing and will place a temporary increase to the levy limit for the term of the note; the purchase is authorized with the first payment due in Fiscal Year 2020 (July 1, 2019-June 30, 2020).  A vote NO disapproves the payments and the article to borrow fails on the contingency clause; the purchase is not authorized.

Absentee ballots are availbale at the office of the Town Clerk.  To receive an absentee ballot you must fill out an application by noon, Friday, June 1.
