Dracut

Dracut to vote on Proposition 2½ override

On Monday, Dracut residents will cast their ballots in a special election on a Proposition 2½ override. Supporters of the override, including a parent group called Stand Up for Dracut, say the $2.9 million being proposed to aid the School Department would mean the hiring or retention of 32 people to help staff and maintain the town’s renovated high school, in addition to a $650,000 technology upgrade within the school system. Those against the proposal fear the increase in taxes would be too much for residents, who have already seen significant jumps in other expenses such as water rates. The estimated annual tax increase would average about $279 per homeowner.
