Referendum Open House and Information

An open house will be held on Wednesday, October 21st from 5-7pm in the Community Center located at S10414 Cty Rd HH I in Cleghorn. The Town Board will be in attendance to answer any of your questions regarding the upcoming referendum questions.

The question that will be on your ballot is:

Under state law, the increase in the levy of the Town of Pleasant Valley for the tax to be imposed for the next fiscal year, 2021, is limited to 3.15%, which results in a levy of $763,525.  Shall the Town of
Pleasant Valley be allowed to exceed this limit and increase the levy for the next fiscal year, 2021, for the purpose of road construction projects, by a total of 26.194% which results in a levy of $963,525, and on an ongoing basis, include the increase of $200,000 for each fiscal year going forward?” 

A “Yes” vote will approve permanently raising the levy limit $200,000, allowing for more road projects to be completed and a “No” vote will keep the levy the same and further limit the amount of road projects which can be completed annually as the cost of materials and equipment continues to rise.
