What's $900,000 between friends?

Posted by Ralph Ranalli November 11, 2007 07:21 AM


Sherborn officials say Dover owes their town $900,000.

The money is a result of a school bond that was mistakenly refunded to Dover by the state, said Board of Selectmen Chairman Christopher Peck, who added that he believes the two municipalities can resolve the issue amicably.

Peck, board vice chairman Paul R. DeRensis, and Selectman Ronald J. Fernandes earlier this month signed a letter accompanying a written presentation from town counsel Ray Miyares. The letter asked Dover town officials and the Regional School Committee to review the materials and figure out a way to return the money soon.

"We're interested in keeping a tight time line," Peck said. "We need to work quickly with Dover to resolve this."
