From the Boards
At Saturday’s Town Meeting, voters will be asked to vote on 50 articles. Here’s a synopsis of each, in plain English, including its fiscal impact.
Like a horse on a carousel, the cost to taxpayers for the proposed Hildreth House renovations went up, then back down, at the March 24 Board of Selectmen meeting.
The Board of Selectmen and the Finance Committee have both recommended that $20,000 be added to the Council on Aging’s annual budget to cover the cost of an additional outreach coordinator.
The Harvard schools are seeking approval of three warrant articles at Annual Town Meeting, one of which will also have to be approved at Town Election. All the measures are for capital improvements to the schools’ physical plant.
At their March 24 meeting, the selectmen voted to award the contract for renovating Town Hall to low bidder G.V.W. Inc. of East Boston.
Given the chance to buy or lease a used ladder truck for the Fire Department, the selectmen opted to lease the truck for a dollar a month for the next three months. At the end of that time, they may decide to buy the truck.
The Harvard School District will make a half-dozen new seats available to Choice students in the coming school year.
The luck of the Irish was with Town Hall on March 17 when general contractor bids were opened and the lowest proved to be less than recent estimates had predicted.
