Granby voters OK funds for new public library at special Town Meeting. (Springfield Republican, 10/25/2011)
Excerpt: In a special Town Meeting on Monday night, voters approved the transfer of $861,304 from the town’s Municipal Building Stabilization Fund to help build a new Granby Free Public Library.
The decision was met with applause, whoops and cheers in the gymnasium of Granby High School, where the meeting was held. Approval of the motion was so overwhelming that the moderator did not need to ask for a count.
Afterwards, an official estimated that, out of the 262 people present, the dissenting votes were in the single digits.
