Westerly residents approve sewer improvement bonds
Voters in Westerly headed to the polls for a special referendum Monday to decide on spending $1.66 million on sewer improvements for the town.
They overwhelmingly favored the bonds on a 429-82 vote, according to the Rhode Island Board of Elections.
The question read:
"Shall the Town of Westerly finance sewer system infrastructure improvements through the issuance of general obligation bonds and notes therefor in an amount not to exceed $1,664,000?"
Since it was approved, residents should expect an increase in their taxes.
