Town Meeting passes parking project


Special Town Meeting has approved a $1.5 million project that would increase the parking capacity at Butler Elementary School from 66 to 177 spots and improve traffic safety. Town Clerk Jean Kopke said the proposal will be on the April 9 ballot as a Proposition 2½ debt exclusion, or temporary tax increase. Voters also approved spending $25,000 to repair the gazebo in the town center and $291,000 to make improvements at the municipal water department and pay fines to the state, she said. Kopke said the fines and upgrades are related to the 2012 discovery that former water superintendent John Tetreault doctored water safety records in 2010.
