  • Will Depew follow state majority's opposition to dissolution?

    From: http://buffalonews.com/2016/12/26/ha...years-vote-no/

    It may take a village to raise a child, but what does it take to put down a village?

    Voters rejected efforts to dissolve village governments in 60 percent of the 47 villages in New York State where referendums have been held during the past eight years.

    If that history is indicative, the village of Depew is more likely to survive than not when its 15,000 residents go to the polls to decide its future in less than a month.

    Since 2008, residents of 28 villages have ultimately voted against dissolving, while 19 voted to abolish their village governments, according to records from the New York State Conference of Mayors. In some villages there were multiple votes held.
