Redding residents have approved bonding for two capital projects. $300,000 for a new 120-foot communications tower at the police department was approved on a vote of 325 to 197. $6.73 million over four years has been proposed for an additional 20-miles in the road reconstruction plan was approved on a vote of 375 to 148.
Redding and Easton also approved funding for a partial roof restoration for Joel Barlow High School.
A second vote was held yesterday for the Region 9 issue after the first decision had to be thrown out. During a budget referendum, residents did approve the funding, but a technical error meant a new vote had to be taken. The Region 9 Board of Ed held a hearing in March a day too late for public notice. The total appropriation is $1.4 million. Redding's share is 54-percent based on school population with Easton picking up the remaining cost.
The vote passed overall by nearly 300 votes.
