On April 1, there will be an important special town election in Groton to vote on the debt-exclusion for the new firehouse.

We urge everyone who wants to support our town to be sure to go out and vote "yes" on this important piece for our town budget. In order to maintain the level of municipal services currently in Groton, it is essential for the debt exclusion to pass. If it fails, additional cuts may be made to both town municipal services and the schools.

The polls will be open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. Precinct 1 will vote at the Groton Senior Center, 163 West Main St., and Precincts 2 and 3 will vote at the Prescott Building, 145 Main St.

Please take just a few minutes out of your day, support your town and vote "yes" on the debt exclusion for the new firehouse. None of us wants any further cuts to our town.
