“The fact that only half of the community is registered to vote is a big concern of ours,” RSF Association Board President Philip Wilkinson said.
On Feb. 27, the RSF Association received a petition signed by the number of people necessary to trigger a vote on the RSF Garden Club purchase.
A vote in April 2013 resulted in 667 of 785 votes in favor of the Garden Club purchase, but the petition signees believed that the deal had changed enough during the last several months of negotiations to warrant another vote.
The last day to register to vote on the RSF Garden Club purchase item is March 24. The language for the RSF Garden Club vote will be approved by the RSF Association board at its March 20 meeting and mailed April 4. The deadline to return ballots will be May 5.
