Voters approve repairs, computers

Voters at Town Meeting Monday night approved several articles having to do with school repairs, and passed an article that will dramatically upgrade the town’s computer network. Voters unanimously approved $830,000 for a new roof at the West School and $945,000 for windows at the Dawe School, with the state expected to reimburse the town for 57 percent of both projects. Funding for the $750,000 for new windows at the Hansen School was approved by voters last year, but the state’s approval of a Statement of Interest means that the project can now also go forward. Town Meeting also approved a collection of maintenance requests for all eight schools, borrowing $492,000 and using $190,000 in free cash. Voters also approved: $285,000 to upgrade hardware for the computer network in eight schools and six town buildings; the Community Preservation Committee’s request to use $250,000 in CPA funds to help restore the downtown train station the town is purchasing from the MBTA; and $235,000 to buy a building and two acres at 235 Lambert St., adjacent to the headquarters for the Council on Aging and Youth Commission on Rockland Street, to possibly be used for parking or an expansion of the council’s headquarters.
