The West Tisbury annual town meeting has been rescheduled to April 28 after voter turnout fell short of a quorum Wednesday. The annual meeting opened Tuesday and adjourned to a second night with seven articles to go on the warrant. But on Wednesday only 100 voters checked in at the West Tisbury School; 125 are needed for a quorum.

After waiting for about 15 minutes moderator Dan Waters apologized and announced the meeting would resume on April 28 at 7 p.m. “It’s the best we could do. You have seven more articles to go,” he said, asking people to spread the word about the next meeting. Unfinished business includes a request to designate four historic paths as ancient ways and a change to the town housing bylaw on accessory apartments

Meanwhile, in neighboring Tisbury, the second night of the annual town meeting was under way.

Voters approved a $1 million bond to finance construction of a new water department office and garage after vigorous debate. Planning board members favored the expenditure, but objected to the proposed location, a large lot on West Spring street across the road from the current water department headquarters at Tashmoo Spring. An amendment to hold more public hearings and allow the planning board to choose the site was defeated.

Voters followed up by approving a measure to establish an information and referral web site for older Vineyard residents, along with a full time employee to staff a phone referral service. Tisbury’s share of the Island wide program is $15,043. West Tisbury, Oak Bluffs, and Edgartown approved their share of the costs Tuesday evening.

Oak Bluffs and Edgartown finished their meetings Tuesday night.

Annual town elections will be held Thursday in Edgartown, West Tisbury and Oak Bluffs.
