Residents of the village of South Nyack have voted to dissolve their 142-year-old government.
The local board of elections on Thursday tallied 508 votes to dissolve the village with 292 against the measure, The Rockland Journal News reports.
The dissolution plan calls for municipal services such as police protection and street maintenance to be provided by Orangetown.
South Nyack was incorporated in 1878.
“We acknowledge that the residents have chosen to dissolve the village and we will now work to establish a plan that will allow for a smooth transition into the Town of Orangetown," Mayor Bonnie Christian told the newspaper.
Voters cast their ballots at the Living Christ Church even after a snowstorm blanketed the region.
The dissolution process was kicked off by a 250-name petition filed in August. Supporters pointed to the village's dire financial status.
The dissolution process could take up to two years, the Journal News reported.
