Good for them - environmental extremism in this state is pervasive. The impacts of the decisions like this one cannot be considered as a stand alone issue. Deny this pipeline; invoke a $15 per hour minimum wage; deny fracking; discourage "oil trains"...issue after issue is just killing the state economy - there's gonna be o no one left to turn out the lights - people are leaving in droves!!!!

Is this article accurate in reference to the timing? By mid-June - really? Seems awfully fast for this amount of construction. I hope the June reference is correct.

Yes, if you are abolishing an elected position, then, yes you need a referendum since that position would change from an elected one to an appointed one. In this case, it's a budget change, which is under the preview of the Town otherwords, the actual status of the position doesn't change, just the compensation. All salaries are set by the Town Board. If the Rec. of Taxes simply went from full time to part time and WAS STILL elected, then no referendum would hav been needed.
