    NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that at a regular meeting held on the 22nd day of June, 2016, the Town Board of the Town of Taghkanic, Columbia County, New York, duly adopted a bond resolution, an abstract of which follows, which resolution is subject to a permissive referendum pursuant to Section 35 of the Local Finance Law and Article Seven of the Town Law of the State of New York.

    Said resolution authorizes the construction of a new highway garage of approximately 4,700 square feet at the existing Town property at County Route 27 and Pumpkin Hollow, including related demolition, site work, administrative areas, maintenance and storage and original furnishings and equipment required for such purpose, at an estimated maximum project cost of $675,675; authorizing the issuance of serial bonds of the Town of Taghkanic, Columbia County, New York, in an aggregate principal amount not to exceed $511,675 pursuant to the Local Finance Law to finance a portion of the cost thereof; and delegates certain powers to the Town Supervisor.
