Meeting of the (selectmen's) minds

BERLIN/BOYLSTON

Selectmen from the towns of Boylston and Berlin will meet tonight in Berlin to discuss how to raise state money and divide the cost of renovating Tahanto Regional Middle and High School.

Critics say the school has a leaking roof, an inadequate library, antiquated science labs, and lacks expansion room for important programs like special education. The regional school district recently sent a letter of interest to the state School Building Authority, outlining their desire to replace or renovate the 43-year-old facility.

The two boards will meet at 7:30 p.m. at the town offices on Linden Street in Berlin to talk about the best way to break down the cost of a renovation or addition, if the plan it is approved by the state. The cost of the project has yet to be determined.
