No operating override seen in Sherborn, but...

For the first time since 1999, residents will not be asked this spring to back a Proposition 2 1/2 operating override, according to Selectman Chris Peck.

The town has enjoyed higher-than-expected returns on its investments and fewer employees than expected have enrolled in health and pension plans, Peck said.

Town Meeting will be asked to approve a $1.6 million debt exclusion override for a public works garage. That tax hike would expire once the garage is paid off.
