RYE, N.Y. – The results of the City of Rye’s two bond referendums were too close to call early Wednesday morning with a little more than half of the votes counted.

The $1.68 million proposed bond referendum was failing by a mere 2 votes, according to unofficial results from the Westchester County Board of Elections.

The bond includes a $330,000 project to reconstruct Smith Street; a $550,000 project to improve intersections at Smith, Elm and Purchase streets; a $250,000 project to replace a sewer siphon under the Locust Avenue bridge and construct a new sewer line; a $300,000 phase of a bigger project to address the Boston Post Road retaining wall; and $250,000 to fund pedestrian safety enhancements throughout the city.

Another $176,000 bond for improvements to the Rye Free Reading Room was passing by a mere 13 votes at 1 a.m. Wednesday.

In the city election, Rye City Council Member Julia Killian (R), who ran uncontested, was re-elected for the seat she was appointed to fill in June upon Suzanna Keith’s resignation.
