Wolcott says NO to dissolution: Referendum goes down 317-67

In a decisive move, the residents of Wolcott voted against a proposal to dissolve their village into the encompassing town. During a referendum held Tuesday, the vote tally was 317 against dissolution to 67 in favor, keeping the village intact and preserving 14 jobs, including those of two police officers.

Some residents had expressed support for the dissolution, seeking changes and increased activity in the village.

The initiative for the dissolution came after a petition was filed last November, aiming to consolidate the village for reduced tax rates and improved service efficiency. However, the overwhelming vote against the measure shows the community’s preference to maintain its current structure and identity.
