From the Boards
After nearly a year of multiple plans, debates, and detours, the Board of Selectmen finally have the go-ahead from voters to proceed with their plan for the repair, restoration, and renovation of Town Hall.
Civic-minded Harvard voters, among the most engaged in the state, will head to the Bromfield School once again on Tuesday, Nov. 4, to choose a town selectman, fill 12 state and congressional offices, and decide four ballot questions.
School Committee members voted to withdraw their request to the Capital Planing and Investment Committee for $495,000 to demolish the kindergarten wing of Hildreth Elementary School.
Many hoped that this week’s Board of Selectmen meeting would clarify just what voters are expected to vote on regarding Town Hall at the Oct. 29 Special Town Meeting, but the discussion on the Selectmen’s STM presentation turned into a debate between the board and three residents who oppose various aspects of the board’s plan.
If this week’s debate was any indication, the differences between the town’s two candidates for the empty seat on the Board of Selectmen are as much about style and experience as they are about their positions.
