Saugus

Town manager lists priorities

Town Manager Scott Crabtree recently wrote the town’s lawmakers to seek their help in meeting a wide range of town needs relating to state government. Crabtree listed 25 of those priorities in his letter to state Senator Thomas M. McGee, a Lynn Democrat, and state Representatives Kathi-Anne Reinstein, a Revere Democrat, and Donald Wong, a Saugus Republican. Among them are increasing the town’s Chapter 70 state education aid, and its state Chapter 90 funding for road projects; providing additional money for capital projects and personnel, and making the state formula for vocational school funding more equitable to Saugus. Others include advocating against any expansion of the capacity of the Wheelabrator Saugus trash-to-energy plant on Route 107 and for closing the facility’s ash pile; and helping ensure the town is designated as one of the surrounding communities eligible for mitigation funding from Suffolk Downs if the racetrack is awarded a casino license.
