A townwide referendum vote on $5,050,000 in bonding for the Pepper Street Improvement Project will take place at the Monroe Senior Center, 235 Cutlers Farm Road, on Feb. 4 from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m.

Town Clerk Marsha Beno said there is not enough time to mail absentee ballots. However, her office at Town Hall will offer additional hours to apply in person on Thursday from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. and Saturday from 10 a.m. until noon. That also goes or voting on the Grand List.

Registrars, Judith Stripay (R) and Susan Koneff (D), said eight people will be hired to work at one polling place on Feb. 4 for a total cost of $1,300. If four polling places were to be opened, they said it would require a total of 38 staff people and cost around $5,830.

Koneff said about 20 lawn signs will be printed informing voters there will be only one polling place — at the senior center. And Supt. of Schools James Agostine told the Town Council he will allow signs to be posted at school driveways.

The town would pay for 10-percent of the funds for the Pepper Street improvements, while receiving reimbursement for 80-percent of the bonding from the federal government and the other 10-percent from the state.
