From Boston.com comes the story of how one single vote was enough to make a new library possible for the city of Shutesbury, Massachusetts.
A plan to build a new $3.5 million library in Shutesbury has been approved by a single vote after the town clerk determined that a previously uncounted ballot was valid.
Library opponents, oc course, are ready for a "hanging chad" type recount. Oh, well.The original count in last week's referendum was a 522-522 tie, essentially defeating the measure for the town to borrow $1.4 million for the library. The other $2.1 million is coming from the state.
