Town Clerk Statement Regarding IGA Petitions



            On April 29th, I received 13 petitions seeking a referendum to disapprove the recent intergovernmental agreement between the Town of Paris and the Village of Somers.  The time for submitting additional petitions has now run. 


My preliminary review of the petitions indicates that there are a total of 90 signatures, but I’ll be reviewing the petitions and signatures in greater detail to determine their validity under state law.  On or before Friday, May 20, 2016, I’ll be issuing a written determination as to whether the petitions are adequate to trigger a referendum on the intergovernmental agreement, and I’ll post the determination and send a copy of that determination to the petition circulators.
