Afton to vote on new town hall proposal

AFTON – There will be a vote in the town of Afton on Feb. 7 to determine whether the town will take out a $400,000 loan to move the town offices to Rt. 7, outside the village.

This, Lawrence explained, would provide a convenience and accessibility to members of the community.
