There will be a vote at the Granby Town Hall Feb. 26 for the establishment of Water District 6.
The roads involved are Wyborn, Pralll, Ritchie, County Line, County Route 55, South Granby Road, County Route 14 and 8 South, Sharp, Leo Mar, and Merritt.
The district will be established with the majority of votes for that day only. All deed holders should vote — whether you want the water or not. If the majority vote yes, every property owner will have a 38-year assessment added to their taxes of about $535. Those who want the water will then have to hook up their houses to the lines and, of course, pay for their usage.
If you do not want to hook up to use the water you will have this assessment for 38 years anyway. Please let the town know by voting.
It would be a shame for this to pass or fail by having only a few deed holders making this decision for you.
