In an overwhelming vote yesterday afternoon, Village of Middleburgh residents voted 344 to 71 against dissolving the three century old Village and for maintaining the governmental integrity of the current local service residents have treasured for years and obviously still have deep faith in.
The vote total is a bit of cruel irony for the petition creator, as he needed only 85 signatures to have the matter of dissolution put upon the electorate and received around one hundred and thirty, yet could not achieve either number in the actual vote.
Meaning dissolution failed to reach, what we could very well call, the apex of the petition's original support.
