Groton sets public hearing for potentiatl referendum questions

Groton — The Town Council on Tuesday introduced two bond ordinances which could appear on the November ballot: One would modernize the Groton Town police station and a second would extend utilities up Flanders Road to the Interstate 95 interchange.

The council set public hearings for both ordinances for 7:30 p.m. on July 16 in the Town Hall Annex.

The first ordinance would bond $5.34 million to upgrade the police station, including cells for prisoners, the firing range and the area where prisoners are moved from police cars to cells. The bond would also pay for structural repairs to the building.

The second ordinance would bond about $9.9 million to extend utilities up Flanders Road, from Fort Hill Road to I-95, in an effort to encourage industrial development.

Once the public hearing is finished, the council’s Committee of the Whole would discuss the ordinances on July 23, then vote on whether to adopt them at a special meeting immediately afterward, or on Aug. 6.

If approved, the ordinances would be referred to the Representative Town Meeting to act on by Aug. 14. If adopted by the RTM, they would appear on the November ballot.
