Override election is June 11

This was the start of night two of the annual town meeting (ATM) – more residents did show up, but it was still a much smaller crowd than night one.  I ballparked the attendance on night one at about 900.

  • YES
    • ALS – $250K per year
    • Municipal Stabilization Fund to maintain town buildings – $1m. per year
    • Dale Street School feasibility study for MSBA – $1m. (funded from the above monies)
    • Medfield Park & Recreation Commission site planning – $150K
    • Medfield Cultural Alliance matching grant for Cultural Center at former Medfield State Hospital site – $25K
  • NO
    • Council on Aging expansion money – $150K

Given all the votes, taxes will be up about 10%.

    Dear Pete:

    Cultural Alliance matching grant is $25k — not $2 million.

    Not good for taxes.

    I think we are asking too much for the override. May not pass.

    Thanks Mike. Bad proofing by me. Already corrected.

    How does the voting on override items go? Do we get to vote on each item or only on one huge lump sum? It would make sense to me that we vote on each item.
