GRAFTON, Mass. – The Grafton Board of Selectmen has been advocating for a $4.5 million repair project for the Municipal Center and is inviting the public to take a look for themselves.
Residents who want to tour the Municipal Center to see the need for repairs may arrange for a tour by calling the Selectmen's office at 508-939-5335, ext. 100, to schedule a time, Town Administrator Tim McInerney said.
Over the past few weeks, Selectmen have been meeting with various boards and holding outreach meetings about their proposed improvement project, which would be paid for without raising the tax rate by using a combination of surplus funding from the construction of the new Grafton High School, stabilization funds and utility rebates. Also included are about $1.7 million in repairs to school boilers, with the energy savings slated to help with costs.
Selectmen will meet with School Committee on Monday to discuss the plan. Their final public outreach meeting is set for 7 p.m. Wednesday at the Community Barn.
The proposal will be brought before October Town Meeting.
