WATERBURY — Waterbury village voters will have the chance Nov. 6 to decide whether to abolish the village police department.
Village trustees voted 2-1 Wednesday to put the question on the ballot. Approval by voters in November would change the village charter.
Trustee Natalie Howell voted against adding the ballot item. The trustees’ votes, however, did not indicate where they stand on abolishing the police department.
“I’m very concerned with the outcome, the possible outcome,” Howell said. “This is a binding measure.”
Public hearings will occur at 7 p.m. Sept. 25 and Nov. 1 in the cafeteria of Thatcher Brook Primary School. A charter change would need the Legislature’s approval.
