Mill Pond, Church Restoration Top the West Tisbury Warrant

West Tisbury voters will face a 48-article warrant at the annual town meeting Tuesday that includes a controversial request to fund an engineering study for dredging the Mill Pond, $150,000 in Community Preservation Act spending to restore the First Congregational Church and a $13.2 million budget for the coming year.

Library Parking Cost Overruns, Dog Bylaw Top Town Warrant

Extra money to cover the cost of building a parking lot at the new town library and more fine tuning in the controversial rules for dogs on Lambert’s Cove Beach are the issues that top a special town meeting warrant in West Tisbury on Tuesday.

A new parking lot connecting the library and Howes House will cost $145,000 more than originally planned for the new $6 million library, and voters will be asked to pay $46,000, or one third of the bill.
