Capital plan discussions

Selectmen Monday will discuss items included in Executive Assistant Paul Blazar’s capital plan, including nearly $14 million  for a combined police station and Department of Public Works administrative building. That expense would need to be funded through a debt-exclusion tax increase, which would require both a two-thirds majority vote at Town Meeting and a simple majority vote at a town election. Debt-exclusion tax increases allow communities to temporarily increase taxes above what’s allowed under the state’s Proposition 2½ tax-limiting law to pay for borrowing for projects. The capital plan also includes expenses that would not require borrowing, including money for new firefighting equipment, two  police cruisers, and roof repairs for Forest Avenue Elementary School.
