Ayer

New vote in works for school budget

A warrant article rejected at last week’s Town Meeting on funding for next year’s assessment for the Ayer-Shirley Regional School District will be rewritten and presented to Ayer and Shirley voters at Special Town Meeting sessions within 45 days, according to local officials. Superintendent Carl Mock said in a telephone interview that the $8.8 million measure was faulty because it was based on an Ayer assessment “that was too low and a Shirley assessment that was too high.” Of the 38 articles on the warrant, some that were approved included $600,698 for next year’s assessment for Nashoba Valley Regional Technical High School; borrowing $463,281 to fund capital needs of the Police, Fire, Parks, and Public Works departments, and an antilittering bylaw, which faces a review by the state attorney general’s office before it can take effect. In all, 110 voters turned out for the first night of Town Meeting on Monday, and 56 for the second session. There are 5,037 registered voters in town.
