West Bridgewater voters overwhelmingly passed a debt exclusion, or temporary tax increase, for a $64 million middle-senior high school via a ballot vote Saturday, with1,177 in favor and 553 opposed. About 37 percent of the town’s registered voters cast ballots. The Massachusetts School Building Authority will reimburse 54 percent of the school’s cost. The town’s share will be paid through a 30-year tax increase that will initially raise an average property’s yearly bill by $648, before gradually decreasing over the loan’s duration. “I’m thrilled with the results,” said override proponent Jeff Ryan. "More than two-thirds of the voters supported the new school.”
