Town of Lewiston residents planning on voting absentee on the proposed Lewiston Recreation Center July 15th, must file applications by Monday

Applications are available at the Lewiston Town Hall 1375 Ridge Road or can be obtained by calling 754-8213, ext. 222, 256 or 261.

If the referendum is approved it would authorize the town to issue $8 million in bond anticipation notes for the purchase of the land and construction of the facility. The proposed center would be built on Creek Road in front of the Lewiston-Porter High School.

The Lewiston Town Board anticipates using Niagara River Greenway funds to repay the bonds. The town would have the responsibility of providing operating funds for the facility.

Voting on the referendum will be from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. July 15 at the Lewiston Town Hall, 1375 Ridge Road.
