Westerlo's town board came under fire at Tuesday's meeting, accused by a few residents of continuing to exclude the public.

In a town of 3,400, 500 voters turned out Sept. 1 and overwhelmingly voted down a proposal to repair and replace town buildings.

The special election comes just a few months before a large general election but several years after stalled plans to fix a leaking roof and a weathered highway garage.

A delay in the town's badly needed building projects, though unclear how long, is likely.

One of the more persistent concerns from residents was on the maintenance of the new, $1.8 million highway garage, so it would last longer.

A few residents have discussed gathering signatures in order to force a public vote on the bond that could be up to $2.75 million for building upgrades.
