Georgetown Town Council moves forward with special election for capital improvements

GEORGETOWN – At the September 9, 2015 Georgetown Town Council at its Sept. 9 meeting voted to move forward with the scheduling of a special election seeking voter approval to borrow up to $1,925,000 for capital improvements at its current Town Hall and new Annex Building.

“It is important to keep our core,” said Georgetown Mayor Bill West. “Town functions on The Circle and now is the best time to make the improvements.  We have seen a steady increase in business growth over the last two years and the time is right to make a statement of our commitment to our residents, employees, and visitors.”

Residents are encouraged to attend one of the Information sessions, scheduled for Thursday, Sept. 17, at 5 p.m. or Monday, Sept. 21, at 6 p.m.

Both sessions will be held at Town Hall, located at 39 The Circle.

Information presented at these sessions can also be found on the Town website, www.georgetowndel.com.

Residents are also welcome to visit Town Hall during normal business hours, 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., to learn about the needs and plans for improvement.

Town Council has scheduled the special election for Monday, Oct. 12, from noon to 7 p.m. at Town Hall.

At the special election, every property owner and bona fide resident will be able to vote for or against authorizing the borrowing.

Anyone wanting additional information should contact the Town Hall at 856-7391.
