CHERRY CREEK – Residents in the village of Cherry Creek have voted in favor of dissolving the village government.
According to the Jamestown Post-Journal, the unofficial vote on Thursday was 70 to 32 in favor of dissolution. The official vote count, which will include absentees and affidavit ballots, will take place next Wednesday.
Village officials will now work to create a plan to transfer everything over to the town of Cherry Creek government within the next four months.
The Cherry Creek village dissolution is the second in Chautauqua County in the past year, joining Forestville, which is located in the town of Hanover. The village of Sherman also held a dissolution vote late last year, but that referendum failed to get enough votes for a dissolution to move forward.
