Consolidation Costs

To the Village of Pawling Residents:

The Village was challenged with an unbudgeted referendum to vote on the consolidation of the Town and Village of Pawling into one government.

Your Village Board of Trustees share your great pride in our community and fought hard to protect the future of this Village. Unfortunately, this came at an unexpected and unfunded cost.

Today I would like to communicate exactly what the consolidation vote cost every taxpayer in this Village. But before I share the expenses of this referendum, I want to recognize our Village Clerk, Jennifer Osborn.  Jennifer went above and beyond her duties as Village Clerk to keep the expense of the referendum as low as possible for all Village taxpayers.  Jennifer worked diligently on her own personal time to make the process as smooth and fiscally conservative as possible to protect our residents.  Our Village taxpayers would have suffered a greater cost if it were not for all her hard work.  So please help me thank Jennifer!

I also want to thank the Village residents for coming out on a miserable rainy night to vote and keep this beautiful Village thriving! Thank you for making this Village “Positively Pawling”!!
