Rotterdam mailing explains sewer vote

"A lot of people are a little nervous about the vote," said Budka. "They just don't have enough information."

Tommasone's letter addressed several of Budka's questions and said that absentee balloting would not be permitted in the special election due to state law governing such votes.

Jim Fitzmaurice, of Masullo Parkway, also asked the board at its meeting to release the names of the six county elections inspectors that would be overseeing the vote.

Tommasone said he could not provide the names of the inspectors at that time, but said they would be certified elections inspectors.

Residents petitioned the town to consider a sewer line extension last year. But recently, several residents have publicly opposed the project, citing poor drainage and roadways due to a high water table as the neighborhood's more imminent issue.

For information on the proposed sewer district proposal, the town encourages residents to contact Mike Greisemer, public works coordinator at 355-7575 ext. 354.
