Granville Town Meeting results 2019

GRANVILLE — Voters on the floor of Granville’s town meeting Tuesday night cast paper ballots in races for two municipal offices — both of them involving Cheryl Sargeant. Selectboard chair Bruce Hyde stood for re-election to a three-year seat on the board and Sargeant threw her hat in the ring as a challenger. Hyde prevailed by a tally of 27-17.
Also, Town Clerk Kathy Werner’s term expired and she put herself forward for another three years in that role, and Sargeant ran for town clerk, as well. Werner was re-elected, 28-15.
Sargeant was re-elected to her post on the Granville Cemetery Commission.
Other’s re-elected at town meeting where Town Moderator Roger Stauss (1 year), Delinquent Tax Collector Nancy Needham (1 year) and Town Treasurer Kathy Werner (3 years). Kate Stauss agreed to be elected to a one-year term on the cemetery commission, and Brett Stickney won election to the post of second constable.
Examining their municipal budget, Granville residents amended the proposed spending plan when they discovered an error in what the fire department asked for and what was included in the budget. After reducing the spending plan by $1,225, they approved $384,657 in town spending for the coming fiscal year. Also on the fire department front, voters considered a request for $20,000 for a fire station reserve fund. The department rents the station from the town, and it asked for a contribution to pay for some upgrades to the building. Voters weren’t satisfied with the amount a detail provided on those upgrades and instead approved only $5,000 for the fire station reserve fund.
Finally, townspeople OK’d a request to make the Corner School Resource Center exempt from property taxes for five fiscal years beginning this July 1.
