Selectmen Meet February 11th - SOI Part 2

by Bobby Blair
February 12, 2019

A standing room only crowd attended Monday night's selectmen's meeting to hear if the board would entertain the signing of a letter of intent for a feasibility study concerning the present high school. Dr. Brad Jackson noted that when the present high school was built in 1969, it (the building) was broad and expansive as land was cheap at that time. Jackson noted that the building has 41 doors which must be monitored.  The Massachusetts School Building Authority had addressed local stakeholders earlier in the day and provided the steps which would be taken if selectmen signed off on a feasibility study.

Dr. Jackson stated that should a new school be built it likely wouldn't contain a swimming pool or field house as the state's portion of monies which now pay for 31% wouldn't pay for these amenities. When a vote was taken, Chairman Marsden and Selectman John Cronin voted to approve a letter of intent and Mark Ahronian abstaining from the vote.
