Supervisor of Hayes Township, Terry Acton gave us an update on the referendum petition that has been advertised in our paper for the past seven weeks.
After the seven weeks, the petition has received three signatures. One from a former employee and two from friends of the former employee. Acton said that this means that the decisions on the building project will now fall back to the Board.
Acton said that with such few signatures that he can only assume that this means that the residents of Hayes Township have decided not to take this decision to a ballot proposal.
Acton and the Hayes Township Board members would like as much of the communities input as possible, so when the project bids come in, Acton said that they will set up another public meeting at the Community Center on Grant Road and ask for the people’s opinions again.
“It will not be a real vote,” Acton said, “just a casual vote to ask the people, ‘how do you feel about this?'”
