There is a special town meeting tonight in Redding to discuss borrowing for two items. The informational meeting tonight is about a proposed emergency communications tower and a road reconstruction plan.
Originally there was going to be a vote at the meeting, but residents instead will be called on to vote at a referendum being held July 22nd. That machine vote coincides with a referendum on the roof replacement project at Joel Barlow High School.
Redding officials are proposing $300,000 for a new 120-foot communications tower at the police department . $6.73 million over four years has been proposed for an additional 20-miles in the road reconstruction plan. Both projects would be funded through short term borrowing pending long term financing.
The meeting tonight is at 7:30pm at the Redding Community Center.
