WEBSTER - Just 158 residents turned out for Monday's election to vote to on a debt exclusion to fund Webster's $3.3 million share of the $73 million project to renovate Bay Path Regional Technical High School in Charlton. Voters approved the measure 103 to 55. Town Clerk Robert Craver called it "the lowest turnout I've seen since I've been here."
Approximately 73 voters had unanimously approved the debt exclusion article on the town warrant at the February 25 Special Town Meeting. The average cost to Webster households will be about $33, starting in future fiscal years. There are 131 Webster students at Bay Path.
