Selectmen won't endorse $75 million high school renovation
At this week's selectmen's meeting, board member Michael Lyons made a motion to have the selectmen's representative to the Budget Committee support the renovation article at next week's public budget hearings.
"Individually, you can go do whatever you want, but I think we have our own battles to fight," said McBride. "I think we ought to focus on our own side of the street. I vote against the motion, only because the board has never done that before."
"I wish the School Board all the luck in the world," said McBride.Last month, the School Board approved placing an article on the March town election warrant asking to appropriate $74,745,000 for the high school project.The actual amount that will be bonded for the project is closer to $64 million, however, as the state is picking up the tab for the $10.8 million for the renovations to the high school's Career and Technical Education Center.
