Another friendship ruined by money ...

Selectmen Tuesday will discuss their next step in an effort to recoup school money from Dover, which shares in a regional school district with Sherborn.

The state gave the two towns about $23.9 million in 2005 and 2006 to reimburse school construction costs, but Sherborn officials say Dover was given about $510,000 that should have gone to Sherborn.

Sherborn town meeting voters this spring approved a plan that would have required Dover to repay the money over 17 years, but Dover voters nixed the idea.
