Chaumont is a small NY village (population 625) known for having one of the largest freshwater bays in the world. For some time, the village and surrounding Town of Lyme have actively pursued working closely together. At village request, a study committee examined dissolving the village and merging operations with the town. The Chaumont board asked voters in November 2012 whether to dissolve the village. Village voters rejected dissolution, 145-102.
