Officials balance plans for elementary schools

After an unsuccessful attempt to win approval for a new school last year, Hopkinton officials are again addressing the town’s elementary school building needs. The Board of Selectmen has voted to form a new building committee, which will be charged with coming up with another plan to renovate the Center Elementary School or construct a replacement.

In addition, Special Town Meeting on Monday will decide whether to authorize spending $1.1 million to repair the leaky roof at the Elmwood Elementary School on Elm Street. If the measure passes by a two-thirds majority, it will be on a special election ballot on Dec. 3, when voters will decide whether to allow a temporary tax increase — through a debt-exclusion override of Proposition 2½ — to pay for it.
