Redding approves capital items, Region 9 votes on new roof

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.
