Village of Spencer Board of Trustees:

On January 2, 2020 the electorate of the Village of Spencer filed a petition for dissolution to the Village Clerk. The petition contained 104 valid signatures out of 114. The Village Clerk reviewed and certified the petition on January 11, 2020. As required by law, the Village Board of Trustees will be meeting on February 3, 2020 to pass a resolution calling for a referendum on the proposed dissolution.

The Village Board determined it appropriate to develop a Study of Dissolution & Options, to assist the residents of Spencer in understanding the effects and costs of dissolution, as well as any potential alternatives that may be preferred prior to the vote on dissolution. In addition to this Study, the Village will host two public information meetings to answer questions regarding the process and potential outcomes.
