Voters in Vernon have approved the funds to replace the roof at the Center Road School, town officials confirmed Tuesday night.

The town utilized a drive-thru voting method to stay safe during COVID-19. The vote was 25 yes and 0 no.

This is the town's third such historic vote, town officials said.

"We feel it is extremely important to keep our community engaged in their local government and by voting in a safe and effective manner is one way of doing that," Town Administrator Michael Purcaro.

Tuesday's vote approved a $471,450 appropriation from the general fund balance toward the project, which is estimated to cost $1.5 million in total. A state School Construction Grant will cover another $1,028,055.
