The overwhelming vote in favor of the town contributing $3.7 million (one third of the price) to acquire this parcel of land followed a town wide mailing. The town comptroller provided residents with a projection of future budgets/tax increases as well. The Irvington School Board sent a representative to the meeting supporting the acquisition.
