Town voters will decide on the Issue in a special town election on april 26. By Bob Hagerman chapter 9 of Quot an act to provide a charter for the town Ai Bennington a establishes the mechanics and timetable by which consolidation of the governments of the town its three villages and one separate fire District Are to go into effect if voters approve. Under the chapters first Section any municipality within the town that does vote to give up its charter and become part of the unified town under the new charter would cease to exist As of the following Jan. I unless such vote becomes final on or after oct. I in which Case the municipality would cease to exist As of the following March i. Under the timetable now being followed the several municipal votes of the three villages and Rural fire District will All take place Well before oct. I so that to the extent these Are affirmative on merger with the town the several municipalities so voting would cease to exist As of Jan. I 1967. This Section further provides that at such time As these municipalities cease to exist All their assets and liabilities shall become those of the unified town. This Means in effect that instead of any municipality retaining its particular assets and obligations the latter to be paid off by its residents alone All such assets and liabilities Are to be pooled As the towns with All town residents through the town property tax paying off any remaining Village obligations. The objection to this polling weighed by the unification study committee which drafted the proposed charter was that the town and its several municipalities within its boundaries have varying ratios of debts to tax bases. To Pool these could mean a Al Thrift shop recent workers at the shop were Lavina Hayward Wilhel Mana Hicks Juna Fuller and Mary Schaaf. A group of volunteers meet every tuesday to sort and Mark the articles which Are on Sale the following Friday and saturday. Tuesday is an excellent Day to receive articles As the shop is open from i to 3.

Requests have come in for jewelry a crib sewing machine a folding stroller dishes Spring hats ladies and menus shoes. Nanlal disadvantage to some taxpayers and an advantage to others. But based on the committees finding that the several ratios currently Are fairly close and its feeling that to keep separate retention of the municipal debts would have an undesirable effect on the consolidation atmosphere the drafting body decided that the pooling approach was the better one. The first step in the adoption of the proposed charter is a town wide vote this to be held april 26. If a majority of the towns voters which includes those who Are also residents of the three villages vote affirmatively the next key vote a tentatively set for june i a will be that of Bennington Village alone. Residents of this municipality will vote on whether or not to give up the villages charter and merge with the town. If this vote too is affirmative the two prerequisites for the new charter a going into effect will have been met and consolidation of these two municipalities at the very least will become a reality As of Jan. I. The other three municipalities involved a old Bennington North Bennington and the Bennington Rural fire District a will subsequently have votes determining of their respective Charters will be Given up and these units also merged with the town. Under the tentative timetable set up by the unification committee these votes would All take place on july 19. This timetable meets the time specifications for the several votes set Forth in the proposed charter. This Calls for the town wide vote within 60 Days from the Date of the enabling acts passage the Bennington Village vote within 60 Days of an affirmative town vote becoming final and each of the other municipal votes within 30 Days of the affirmative Bennington Village vote becoming final. In the Case of All the several votes the charter provides that a vote of reconsideration of any municipality a affirmative vote May be called by a petition filed with the appropriate legislative body within 20 Days of the original affirmative vote. Such petition must be signed by at least 5 per cent of the qualified voters of the municipality involved. United Church women set Spring projects furniture inc. Bennington it. Phone 442-5131 320 Elm Street continue up from new Post office if no such petition is filed the original affirmative vote becomes effective at the end of the 20-Day period. If such a petition is filed the affirmative vote becomes final at such time As it is reaffirmed if that is the Case. In the event of any negative vote by any municipality no Lim i Quot ration is placed by the charter on the holding of subsequent meetings to vote again on the question. A final provision establishes that Absentee balloting Quot shall be permitted at any municipal meeting held under this the key and most controversial feature of this procedure for the proposed charter a adoption is the fact that there is no separate vote on the charter a acceptance by voters of the so called Quot outside Quot town that is those living outside the boundaries of the three villages. On two occasions members of the study committee voted 9-6 hardly a unanimous decision a for having the single town wide vote. This represents a Radical departure from the last time consolidation was considered when the outside had its own vote which proved a decisive one for defeating consolidation. It was because of this precedent that a number of the committees members Felt a similar procedure should be followed on adoption. But the key argument which finally won out was that provision of such a separate vote by the Rural area voters would constitute in effect a potential veto Power by a minority of the towns voters. A related Factor weighed by the committee was that the Quot outside Quot town As such does not represent a Legal entity but that the granting of a separate vote on acceptance of the town charter would in effect be recognizing it As such. Geographically the Quot outside Quot town is also the Bennington Rural fire District. As such its voters will have the Chance to vote on whether or not to give up its charter and become part of the unified town. But this vote by itself will not determine whether or not the proposed town charter goes into effect As would the separate Quot outside Quot town vote on acceptance of the charter of this were called for.
