Hudson voters approve override for senior center expansion

Posted February 6, 2008 12:08 PM


A $4.4 million debt exclusion override measure in Hudson passed with 3,882 votes in favor compared to 1,732 votes against yesterday.

Town Clerk Joan Wordell said turnout was very heavy, which was expected given the presidential primary vote (which was on a separate ballot).

The override will fund an expansion and renovation of the towns' senior center.

Unlike an operating override, which permanently adds to the total amount of property tax revenue a town can collect from property owners and businesses, a debt exclusion override raises taxes to fund a specific project and expires when the bonds for the project are paid off.

Wordell also said that 78 voters turned in blank ballots.
