  • Rejection a possibility for turf question on ballot

    WESTERLY — Residents will have the ability to completely reject the concept of borrowing money for artificial turf fields on a question planned for the November ballot.

    The Town Council agreed Monday that questions will have to be worded in such a way as to allow residents to completely reject the field proposal. The agreement came after Councilor Jack Carson said some residents misunderstood a previous council discussion during which the council agreed to give voters an option of approving spending for one or two fields at the high school. The council always intended complete rejection of the artificial turf proposal as an option, Carson said.

    Diana Serra, council president, confirmed the proposed cost of two fields, one for Augeri Field and one for the high school’s quad area, is $2,075,000. A single, artificial turf carpet at Augeri Field would require a $975,000 financial commitment from residents.
