Goshen - Orange County Lawmakers Set To Vote On Funding To Fight Kiryas Joel Annexation
Orange County, NY - On the heels of a Tuesday night vote by the Monroe Town Board green-lighting a 164-acre expansion of Kiryas Joel, a special meeting of the Orange County Legislature has been scheduled for Tuesday to vote on whether to appropriate some $250K for a legal challenge to the annexation.
RECORDONLINE.com (http://bit.ly/1JYyszD) reports that the Monroe Town board rejected KJ’s request for a 507-acre expansion but in a 4-1 vote approved its 164-acre plan at Tuesday’s session.
A special meeting has now been scheduled for 4:30 p.m. on Tuesday at the Emergency Services Center in Goshen. Following an executive session discussion over possible litigation, lawmakers will then vote publicly.
