Armory group attempts to set record straight

Few Seats Empty

Another full house -- like the one shown here Aug. 19th -- is expected next week at Town Hall when the local governing body is scheduled to vote on the future of the Harris Memorial Armory. The 1936 landmark, which was given to the Town in 1988 by the National Guard, has dogged officials off-and-on since 2002. The special meeting is set for 7:00 p.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 11th. The vote originally was scheduled for Aug. 28th but was delayed to Sept. 4th (tonight) so the Town could first receive copies of a $20,000 business plan to be presented that night. The meeting has been postponed again because a member of Council is on vacation, and Mayor Billy Coleburn says he wants all seven members present for the vote, which could include a decision to hold an informal referendum or “Community Voting Day” to help Council resolve the issue.
