Forum on Lexington debt exclusion vote set

The League of Women Voters of Lexington will host an informational forum on Friday, Dec. 1, at 9:30 a.m. about the upcoming debt exclusion vote to fund three town projects. Selectman Joe Pato and School Committee member Kathleen Lenihan will be on hand to describe the need for the projects — a new Maria Hastings Elementary School, a new Lexington Children’s Place preschool, and a new fire headquarters. Resident Patrick Mehr will present reasons to reject the tax increase and to find alternative ways to fund the projects. The meeting will take place at the Cary Memorial Library. The debt exclusion vote will take place Dec. 4. Voting is from 7 a.m. until 8 p.m. For more information, contact the league at lwvlexington@gmail.com.
