Village of Greenwich residents mull dissolution

GREENWICH -- Voters will go to the polls Tuesday in the village to vote on a resolution to dissolve the village and merge with the town.

A petition was circulated by a local businessman in an effort to lower taxes for residents, but some fear it would hurt the village's charm.

"If control of the village is not ours, it's going to be with people who live in the outskirts, who are not really concerned with the village proper itself," said Roy Arnella, who placed a "No" sign on his porch.

The village has posted a lengthy explanation against the dissolution on its website. Some residents predict the move would reduce services and would not provide the financial windfall predicted.

"We love our village and we don't feel it's necessary to dissolve into a big town. I don't want to lose our fire department, I don't want to lose our emergency squad and I don't want to lose our small town feel," said village resident Staci Talkington. "People think they're going to save money and in the long run I don't think that's the case. I think maybe our taxes would go up and I don't know what we would get at that point."

Polls are open from noon to 9pm Tuesday.
