Middleton residents approve $6.6M for new school
Residents gave the go ahead to withdrawing from Farmington schools, accepting a tuition agreement with the Gov. Wentworth Regional School District and take out a $6,592,500 bond to build a new school along King’s Highway.
Under the plan, Middleton’s students in grades 7-12 would attend schools in Wolfeboro beginning the fall of 2015. Students in kindergarten through grade 6 would stay in Farmington until the new school is built the following year.
Also on Tuesday, residents re-elected Terry Laughy as selectman and Deborah O’Toole as town clerk/tax collector – both for another three years. Laughy defeated Kathleen Landry 269-249 while O’Toole won against Linda Adamo 346-208.
Marcia Stevens and Landry received 318 and 292 votes to serve on the budget committee for the next three years. Janet Kalar had 220 votes in the race.
