ROCHESTER N.Y. (WHEC) — During Tuesday’s vote on school district budgets and other projects, residents of Victor overwhelmingly rejected a proposal to build a new 24,000 square-foot library.

3,256 residents voted NO, while 1,415 residents voted Yes. The proposed Victor-Farmington library would have cost $16.6 million in taxpayer funds and would have taken two years to build.

“After dedicating over five years to researching a larger library, consulting experts, and evaluating options, we understand and respect the hard decision voiced by voters,” Victor Library Board President James Myers said.
