An oversized wastewater system costing over $100,000 a year for O&M and bond repayment! 

We are buying a $4 million municipal wastewater system that will require the taxpayer to repay a $400,000 bond plus cover a significant part of the ongoing operations and maintenance (O&M) cost.


These annual costs amount to over $100,000 per year with approximately $30,000 paid by user fees and the remaining $70,000* paid by Westford taxpayers. 

In return the town gets municipal wastewater for the town office and library! 

*Selectboard to consider covering Westford Common Hall and Brick Meeting House user fees with annual donation.

Some people think this is a High Risk system:
