Districts to hold final merger meetings Sept. 25 & 26

Now that both boards of education have agreed to hold straw votes in their respective districts, there will be two final community meetings, one at 6:30 p.m. Sept. 25 in Arkport and the second at 6:30 p.m. Sept. 26 in Canaseraga.

Next, residents will vote on an advisory referendum, or straw vote, on Oct. 9, 2018. If the straw vote is successful, the districts would then ask the state education commissioner to authorize an official merger vote on Nov. 12, 2018.
