MUNICIPAL OPTION ELECTION TO BE HELD ON JANUARY 20, 2015

On January 20, 2015 the Town of Hayden will hold a municipal option (wet/dry) election to determine whether to allow the sale and distribution of alcoholic beverages within the town limits of Hayden. This election is the result of a petition signed by the appropriate number of town residents requesting the vote to be held. All necessary information regarding the petition has been verified and the election date has been set.

To vote in this election you must be a registered voter AND reside within the town limits of Hayden. The Town of Hayden is unlike most cities/towns due to the legislative annexation in June 2010. Most cities/towns have a contiguous (solid) city/town limit…the Town of Hayden does not. Only those who live within the town limits can vote on any issue regarding the Town of Hayden. Most people think they reside in the town limits if they have a Hayden mailing address…that is incorrect.

To verify whether or not you reside within the town limits of Hayden you can visit the Blount County Revenue website (www.blountrevenue.com) click on “Public Records”, “Tax Information”, you can then key in your address, street name or the property owner name to access the records. Near the bottom of the page you will see “Tax District”. If your tax district is listed at “03” you are inside the town limits of Hayden. If your tax district is “02” you are in unincorporated Blount County and CANNOT vote on any Town of Hayden specific elections.

The Hayden Town Council, in a pro-active measure, approved a 34-page ordinance in June 2014 to regulate the sale and consumption of alcoholic beverages within the town limits. The ordinance is on file at the Hayden Town Hall and is available for anyone to view.

To ensure you receive the correct information regarding the Town of Hayden, you are encouraged to attend the monthly Town Council meetings which are held on the 2nd Tuesday of each month at 6:30pm at the Hayden Town Hall.
