After debate, Westborough voters approve budget at Town Meeting

Westborough--Tensions between growth and fiscal prudence, the town's history and its increasingly diverse present and future, drove hours of debate at the Annual Town Meeting March 15, where even small budget line items sparked impassioned discussion, though in the end voters largely endorsed the recommendations of town leaders. An $89 million operating budget for fiscal year 2015 passed by voters was the one recommended by the Advisory Finance Committee. All of the capital items put forward - including new cruisers, a new police and fire radio tower and bathroom renovations at the Westborough Public Library - were approved by the 200 or so voters who turned out for the meeting.
