Medfield elections

Medfield voters approved two Proposition 2 1/2 overrides at a special
election earlier this week (Monday June 5), one to pay for construction of
a new adult community center and the other to boost next year's budget.

Voters approved, 1,440-589, an $800,000 debt exclusion override to pay for
the senior centerís construction.

Voters also passed by a vote of 1,276-770 a $1 million boost to the $44
million town and school operating budgets.

The two overrides together will add roughly $54 per $100,000 of value to a
person's property tax bill. After the 20 years, when the senior center is paid off, the amount will decrease slightly. -- Charlie Russo
