For the second time in two years, Marblehead residents voted to override Proposition 2½, endorsing $3.64 million in proposals to repair Abbot Hall’s iconic town clock, and to remove hazardous waste that was left on a privately owned parcel next to the town dump.

The $3.64 million that the town plans to borrow will be paid back by taxpayers over the next 20 years. Owners of a single-family home valued at $653,642, the median price in town, will pay an additional $23.40 annually for the next 20 years, a total of about $468.

Abbot Hall, which functions as Marblehead’s Town Hall, has had a bell that has wrung on the hour since 1877.
