The Village of Middleburgh will not be dissolving into the Town of Middleburgh.

344 people voted "no" to the proposal.

Only 71 were in favor of it.

That's 83% to 17%.

Village residents were promised a tax decrease that would come with eliminating duplicate services.

But almost everyone we spoke with said they wanted their village to stay independent.
