At its January 10th meeting, the Board of Education discussed steps to verify petitions requiring the district to hold a permissive referendum asking residents to vote on the actions of the board to sell 34.334 acres of vacant, district-owned land to BBL for $2 million with the donation of 17.5-19 acres of the land to the town of Clifton Park. The timeline for a potential permissive referendum was also discussed.
Under NYS Education Law §1804 regarding permissive referendums on the sale of land, there must be 10% of qualified voters signing the petition, they must be original signatures (no on-line signatures allowed) and all petitions (submitted and notarized as being true and accurate) must be submitted 30 calendar days after the BOE took action.
