*******NOTICES & EVENTS*******

Please note the new location for Sheldon election day voting on November 6th:

ALL VOTING will take place at the St. John Neumann parish hall (Weber Hall)  991 Centerline Rd. (corner of Centerline and North Sheldon Rds) .  The polls will be open 6am-9pm. 

There will also be the following  Town proposition on the ballot:

The proposition was proposed by the Sheldon Town Board out of a concern that there would be a deficiency in knowledge if the Town Supervisor and the Town Clerk are both replaced in the same election term.  Changing the Town Clerk to a two-year term January 1, 2020 through December 31, 2021 and then reverting back to a four (4) year term effective January 1, 2022 would put the Town Supervisor and Town Clerk on different election cycles. 


There will be a proposition on the November 6th ballot which reads:

The Term of Town Clerk shall be for a term of (2) years effective January 1, 2020 through December 31, 2021 and four (4) year terms effective January 1, 2022 thereafter.

Please choose one of the following:

Yes or No
