Upton officials say they are investigating whether they can use money from three trust funds, which were set up for other purposes, to make improvements to town buildings.

Marsha Paul, chairwoman of the Board of Selectmen, said the upgrades are necessary to bring the town into compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act. Paul said the trust funds have at least several hundred thousand dollars that the town can spend.

Officials will contact the state attorney generalís office for a ruling on whether the money can be used for the building improvements, she said.
