Village of Bridgewater Dissolves; Will Join Town of Bridgewater

Fewer than fifty people came out to vote, but that was apparently enough for one New York village to vote itself out of existence.

The Village of Bridgewater, incorporated in 1825, was dissolved on March 18, 2014 by a vote of forty to eight.

The village will become part of the Town of Bridgewater in January 2015.  The move, says town officials, will save the average homeowner between $100-$200 a year in taxes between 2015-2016.

The move occurred, coincidentally, on the same day that Governor Andrew Cuomo visited the Mohawk Valley encouraging local towns to consolidate.
