Date set for vote on Yorkville Police consolidation

YORKVILLE, N.Y. (WKTV) - A date has been set for when the taxpayers in the Village of Yorkville will head to the polls to decide on the future of their police department.

A village trustee tells us Tuesday, December 13 is the date that has been set by the Oneida County Board of Elections. The polls will open up at noon.

According to Village Trustee Charlie Carey, no official plan is in place if the department is abolished.

A tentative plan was presented to residents at a public hearing earlier this year. That plan says that five fulltime Oneida County Sheriff's Deputies would patrol the village instead of the three Yorkville officers currently on the rotation.

It was in early September that the village board decided it should be up to the taxpayers.
