There was an extremely low turn-out of voters for the Town of Hayward’s nonbinding, advisory referendum Tuesday, Nov. 5.

The referendum question asked voters whether the town board should borrow up to $5 million to construct a new facility to replace its current town hall and offices, fire station and highway shop/garage on the town’s 13-acre property on Highway 77 East.

The result was 299 ‘No’ votes and 149 ‘Yes’ votes.

At a later date, the town board will reconsider the public’s opinion on this matter.
