Thursday, October 7,2019 - Hayward taxpayers have rejected a referendum for a new town hall.  On Tuesday, the referendum was defeated 299 to 149 against the measure, which was estimated to cost taxpayers $5 million. That would have meant an average homeowner would pay $150 more per year for a total of 10 years.  The fire department, highway department, police department, and town offices are all located at the current Hayward Town Hall.  Tuesday’s vote was an advisory referendum, and the Town Board plans to hold a Special Meeting to decide how to proceed.
