KIRYAS JOEL - A date has been set for town board members in Monroe to vote on a controversial annexation proposal for the village of Kiryas Joel.

Concerned citizens packed a meeting Monday night where the board scheduled a Sept. 8 vote on a deal that would double the size of the ultra-Orthodox village.

The plan has been a source of controversy in the community, and now many in Monroe say they are just anxious to hear the results of the vote.

The Monroe vote is currently set for Tuesday, Sept. 8 at 12 p.m., but that time may be changed to the evening so more people can attend.

There is still no word on when officials in Kiryas Joel will hold their own vote.
