Hollis/Brookline voters set to debate school space issue
Citizens attending the cooperative school district’s annual meeting on March 3 rejected a $5.6 million bond item that would have funded an addition to the high school as well as a new, multi-purpose athletic field and improvements to the existing school facilities.
“The budget committee had concerns about the amount itself and the fact that it was so heavily bonded,” Murphy said on Tuesday. “But the space issue still needs to be addressed.”
If passed Wednesday night, the bond item would result in a tax impact of 3 cents per thousand dollars of assessed property value for Hollis residents and 7 cents per thousand for Brookline residents.
Another $178,000 would be set aside to refurbish the school’s existing sports fields, a less-costly alternative to the $2.3 million synthetic turf field that was previously presented on March 3. Renovations to existing facilities would cost $50,000.
