There is a referendum tomorrow in Redding about borrowing for two items.
One of the proposals Redding residents will be deciding on is an emergency communications tower. The other is a road reconstruction plan. Originally there was going to be a vote at an informational meeting, but residents instead will be voting tomorrow. 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 dollars 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.
