No one is sure what happens next, but by a vote of 5-4, the Village of Time will be dissolved.
“We don’t know much yet,” Joe Chiatello, president of the community, said. “We have Mike Hollahan working on it. I know the money in the general fund will go to the school district, but we had some money in the road and bridge fund. I don’t know if that will go back to the state. I hope we can give it to the township.”
In state races across the county, it was a Republican sweep, but only one of those results held statewide.
