East Bridgewater

Surplus sale yields $10,000


The sale of surplus tools and equipment at the former East Bridgewater High School will benefit the student activities fund at the new East Bridgewater Junior/Senior High School. Superintendent John Moretti told selectmen recently about the decision to transfer the funds. He said last week that the sales generated about $10,000, and each of the four classes at the high school will receive about $2,500. Moretti also told selectmen that anything left over in the schools after the final sale would belong to Fontaine Brothers Inc., the demolition subcontractor. “We still have about 2,000 pounds of nails we can’t use,” he said. The School Department conducted several sales in August, with wood shop and metal shop equipment going first, followed by such things as desks, chairs, and filing cabinets. Other town departments were also encouraged to canvass the school for anything they needed.
