October 25: Ward 3 and 4 Neighborhood Associations Co-Sponsor Override Forum

The Ward 3 Neighborhood Association and Ward4NorthamptonĀ invite you to a public forum:

The Ward 3 Neighborhood Association and Ward4Northampton will jointly sponsor a public forum on the proposed Police Station debt exclusion override question that will appear on the Nov. 2 ballot in Northampton.

The forum will take place Monday, October 25 at 7 p.m. at the Bridge Street School.

Mayor Clare Higgins and Police Chief Russell Sienkiewicz will each make brief presentations and the floor will then be opened for questions and comments from the audience. The sponsors are seeking an override opponent for the panel, and anyone interested in serving in this position should contact Jerry Budgar at 584-2964 or gbudgar@rcn.com.

The override question seeks voter approval for $10 million of the total price tag of just over $17 million to construct a new police station adjacent to the current facility on Center Street.
