Breaking down the overrides in Upton

Posted by Ralph Ranalli August 30, 2007 08:00 AM


Stephen Soma, director of the Department of Public works, will deliver an informational presentation tonight on three proposed debt-exclusion overrides.

Voters will decide at a September 10 special election whether to temporarily increase taxes to pay for upgrades to the town's water and sewer systems, and Soma will explain tonight why the improvements are needed.

Officials had expected the projects to total more than $300,000, but now say the upgrades will cost somewhat less than that. James Bates, administrative assistant to the Board of Selectmen, said he was still unsure what the exact cost would be.

The meeting will be held at the town's fire station.
