Town Hall Forum on Proposed June Referendum

Tuesday, May 22, 2018

Following an affirmative vote by Council this January, the City began taking the necessary planning steps regarding a possible referendum to be held on Tuesday, June 19. The referendum would address the ability for the City to seek approval to borrow money for several capital projects, including the proposed stormwater pond project at the former Rodney dorm site. This would be the first referendum since 2001, when the City sought borrowing authorization to fund construction of the Newark reservoir and upgrades to the South Well Field Water Treatment Plant utilizing debt. To ensure voters eligible to participate in the referendum are well-informed, the City is hosting a series of town hall forums to educate the public on the various capital projects that may be included in the referendum vote and the financial impact associated with approving or rejecting the referendum.
