Bridgewater State University officials presented a check for $105,000 to the town of Bridgewater on April 3 as part of a package of cash and in-kind donations expected to total nearly $200,000 this year. The action could soothe the friction that occurred after BSU suspended its annual $50,000 gift to the town in 2010, citing fiscal constraints. It restored the gift in 2011, but town councilors said they had been left out of discussions, and one councilor called the money “crumbs.” This year’s package includes $45,000 for a fire truck, $40,000 for police communications equipment, and a former university vehicle for the town building inspector. “We were convinced that the town needed some help with one-time capital expenses,” said Fred Clark, executive vice president and vice president for external affairs. BSU has also introduced 25 new $1,000 scholarships for graduates of Bridgewater-Raynham Regional High School.
