VII Unfinished Business
Mel Chafetz reported on the February 9 meeting of the Board of Selectmen during which the BOS voiced unanimous support for the four projects currently under consideration. A $100,000 cost for demolishing Bridge Street School and a $400,000 fee for issuing the bond necessary to fund the highway, town hall, fire department, and library projects will probably increase the cost of the library project to 8.3 or 8.4 million dollars.
The library commission members are encouraged to attend the Board of Finance meeting on February 14.
