Date set for Edgewood referendum

After it was announced earlier this year, a date has been set for the referendum in Edgewood.

The referendum is for two taxation services, one for the Edgewood Legion to help it keep the community hall, and the other forthe town’s fire department.

The taxation service would raise whatever amount the two groups are looking for. In this case, that’s $5,000 for the Legion, and$10,000 for the fire department.

Right now, the fire department is only working with a couple of fire caddies, and doesn’t have a fire truck or a fire hall. TheLegion has been subsidizing the community for a few years, and are finding it hard to keep going without a little bit of asupplement from the community itself.

Both groups are a necessary part of the community. The fire department helps keep everyone safe, and the hall is important forthe community for a variety of uses such as a meeting place, a place for dances, Christmas parties, and so on.

The referendum will take place on June 25.
