The Town meeting in Billerica voted to spend 14 Million dollars to rearrange the traffic pattern in Billerica Center back to a straight line through the center.
A number of residents did not like this, so raised enough signatures to put it to ballot.
Today is the vote.
Unbeknownst to most Billerica voters, the Town Manager and town leaders have called for those in favor of the change to stay home today, as a 20% turnout is required for the vote to overturn the town meeting vote.
Surprisingly, 20% has turned out.. and because they are mostly voters against the change to Billerica Center, the town leaders are panicking.
I hear they are contacting, via the Superintendents office, the teachers in town to try to get them out now.
