When the Marlborough City Council votes on whether to buy a parcel of land on Route 20 at Lake Williams, it will be a referendum on hot dogs.
Mayor Nancy Stevens wants the city to buy land where a vendor has sat for decades and give him the boot. The city council has approved allowing the city to enter negotiations with Russell McKinnon, a Westborough developer who owns the parcel.
But City Councilor Mike Ossing has already said McKinnon's $99,000 asking price is too high.
Megan Woolhouse wrote about the situation in yesterday's Globe West. But the picture below is worth a thousand words.
