Board praises vote for new library

By K.B. Sherman, Contributing Writer

Shrewsbury-large-web-iconShrewsbury – Members of the Shrewsbury Board of Selectmen spent the beginning of their regularly scheduled meeting Oct. 22 praising efforts by board members and town voters that resulted in a “yes” vote at the Oct. 21 Special Town Meeting for the proposed new library.

The board reiterated that the vote for the new library involves a one-time debt exclusion, not a Proposition 2 ? override, a fact the board members claimed was still not clear to town voters who “need to know the facts rather than be scared by a misrepresentation.” A debt exclusion can be approved by a majority vote. The vote for the debt exclusion will take place at a special election Tuesday, Nov. 5.

In other matters, the board noted that the new World War I memorial will be dedicated on Veterans” Day, Nov. 11.
