BATH – Voters in Steuben County will be asked during the General Election on Nov. 8 to approve the most dramatic change in their county government in 40 years.
The change, approved by county Legislators in June is designed to bring residents in all districts into equal standing and represent both urban and rural needs.
It maintains legislative representation on the county board with 17 legislators but reduces the number of districts from 13 to 11. Steuben County reminds voters to turn their ballots over to the back side to vote on this important proposition!
