No Prop. 2 1/2 support seen in Medway

Posted by Martin Finucane March 16, 2007 02:24 PM


Medway residents are unlikely to support a Proposition 2 1/2 override this year, say two members of the Board of Selectmen.

Because the town's belt-tightening and stepped-up collections and increased state aid are producing a $400,000 surplus, townspeople will not favor additional taxes to improve streets or provide additional services, selectmen Dennis Crowley and Glenn Trindade said last week.

All town departments are likely to be level-funded for the coming fiscal year as Medway officials continues to rebuild the town's credibility with taxpayers, Crowley said.

Selectmen had discussed combining the town's outstanding debt in one debt exclusion override, but Crowley and Trindade said it was just an idea that is unlikely to be acted upon this year.
