Voters will go to the polls from noon to 9 p.m. Oct. 22 at the Village Offices (58 Liberty St.) to determine the fate of the Keeseville Dissolution plan, which was accepted by the village board of trustees in July. A “yes” vote will accept the plan and lead to the dissolution of the incorporated municipality on Dec. 31, 2014. A “no” vote will defeat the plan, voiding the previous vote in February that favored dissolution by a tally of 268-176.
