Town Meeting has sent a $4.8 million debt exclusion override to the ballot box on June 12.
The overwhelming support shown for the override at Town Meeting Monday night -- the measure passed 332 to 16 -- came after town officials and consultants detailed major problems with town facilities.
Chief James Corcoran told Town Meeting members that a $3.9 million new police station can't be built unless supporters come out in force for the special town election. The override would pay for the new police station, which would be located on Main Street, a laundry list of repairs to Green Meadow Elementary School, and a new boiler in the dilapidated Public Safety Building.
