Medfield Town Meeting voters greenlight two projects, but leave recreation lovers seeing red

Posted by Ralph Ranalli April 30, 2008 06:36 AM

Medfield Town Meeting voters have approved two major building projects in town, but have shot down another.

At Monday's meeting, voters approved spending $1.1 million in design plans and other costs for a public works facility and $100,000 for a preliminary study for a new police and fire station.

Town meeting voters killed a request for $450,000 that would have funded design plans and other costs for a new parks and recreation facility, however.

The costs associated with the public works and public safety projects are being paid for with funds the town has on hand. The recreation building would have required a debt-exclusion override that would have added about $30 per year to the average single-family home property tax bill.
