FAYETTE — Two Fayette public hearing questions are on the ballot are of interest to supporters of Starling Hall. At 7 p.m. October 4 and 18 at Fayette Central School there will be Public Hearings for discussion of the November 8 Ballot questions. Question 2 asks approval for our Board of Selectmen to appropriate $500,000, obtained through borrowing via a general obligation bond, and the money would only be used if a grant were received. This amount will make the Town eligible for Federal matching grants to complete renovations of Starling Hall. Without these matching funds the Town and FOSH are not eligible for the grants we are seeking.

Question 3 asks for an okay to use $8,000 of Undesignated Fund monies to reinstall a basic security system in Starling Hall. These funds will be used to reactivate the fire alarms, emergency lighting and exit lights which were required by the Fire Marshal’s office before public use of the building in 2006. Proper security is very necessary to protect all renovations made to date and for the safety of the new kitchen appliances provided by donors.
