Dear Town of Brighton Residents,

Please note that the referendum question about trash collection on the November 3, 2020 ballot is only advisory. The Town Board simply wanted to know what the opinion of Brighton residents is. Would they prefer Saturday trash collection at the Town Hall or curbside service collection? Residents have expressed interest in both to the Board.

We knew that this election would have a big turnout and thought this is a good way to get an accurate idea about how people felt. We have lots of time to make a good decision because the current contract for trucks goes through to December 31, 2021.

The results will be shared on our website and discussed in great detail at future town board meetings.

This referendum is a perfect way to learn the opinion of almost all Brighton residents at one time.

Susan Crane, Brighton Town Chair
