Harvard voters will soon have a chance to speak their minds on the selectmen’s plan for the renovation of Town Hall.

In a split vote Tuesday night, the selectmen refused to approve a new contract brought to them by the coaches and organizers behind Bromfield Acton-Boxborough’s championship rowing team.

If your teen is starving by the time lunch rolls around, new options will be available at Bromfield this year to quell their growling stomachs.

As summer has peaked and waned, so has enthusiasm among the selectmen for their plan to renovate Town Hall. Their growing uncertainty was on display at last Tuesday’s August 5 meeting.

Despite occasionally outspoken criticism of their plan for renovating the Town Hall, the Board of Selectmen has publicly remained committed to a preliminary design that even they acknowledge appears to satisfy nobody.
