Dozens of people in West Seneca signed a petition asking for a taxpayer vote on a multi-million dollar bond taken out by the town.
The West Seneca Town Board approved the additional $5 million bond last month to pay for the construction of a library complex on Union Road.
The project was originally estimated to cost $9.8 million.
Those behind the petition say they want to make sure tax payers are able to put their stamp of approval on the move.
"If we want this money to be borrowed on our dime and us to pay it back one way or not; we need to have a vote on it. If it does pass then we know the voters, the citizens, the people who are ultimately responsible for paying this bill want it," said West Seneca resident Dan Warren.
The petition needs 686 signatures to pass.
