Hopkinton voters to decide on disability upgrades tomorrow

Posted by Ralph Ranalli June 17, 2007 12:02 PM


Upgrades to Town Hall and three schools to make them more accessible to the disabled are on the line in tomorrow's town election.

Residents at last week's special Town Meeting approved appropriating about $290,000 for the upgrades, which will bring Town Hall and the schools into compliance with state and federal disability laws. The money will be used to build new ramps and make numerous other adaptations at the buildings.

The measure on the ballot is in the form of a debt exclusion property tax increase, in which the town's tax levy will increase until the debt is paid off.
