Harvard: Election, Meeting results

Continue reading below

In Tuesday’s town election, former selectwoman Lucy B. Wallace, in a tight race, defeated Rhonda R. Sprague, 790 to 747, for a three-year term on the Board of Selectmen. Among the other contests, Patricia C. Wenger and Robert F. Sullebarger won three-year seats on the School Committee, and running unopposed were Janet A. Vellante (town clerk), Richard C. Marcello (Planning Board), and Robert E. Eubank (moderator). At the April 28 Town Meeting, one major spending measure was approved, while a surcharge plan was rejected. Voters backed a proposal to borrow $3.97 million over 20 years for renovating Town Hall and the adjoining Hildreth House. As a result, it’s estimated that the average single-family home tax bill will increase by $110 annually. Defeated was a proposal to increase the Community Preservation Act property tax surcharge to 3 percent from 1.1 percent.
