New vote needed in Easton, Redding on Joel Barlow roof replacement

Another vote is needed on a roof restoration project already under way at Joel Barlow High School.  The Redding Pilot reports that the second referendum will take place next month due to a series of errors.  The Redding and Easton Town Clerks say the Region 9 Board of Education didn't submit the legal notice paperwork to them. 


The vote was held in May and the approximate $1 million project was approved with overwhelming support.  Redding residents approved the measure 1,146 to 424.  Easton residents voted 546 to 276.  Redding's share is about $566,000, Easton's is $477,000.  The 54-percent shouldered by Redding and 46-percent by Easton is based on enrollment in the school by each town.


At the Board of Ed meeting this week, it was decided to hold a vote on the full amount needed because the contractors are not requiring payments as work progresses.  The Pilot reports that a second referendum could cost the towns $8,000.
