It took until almost midnight, but the Wellesley Special Town Meeting Monday night voted 188 to 18 to approve a proposal to build a new high school building.
The vote came after considerable opposition was voiced, including an eleventh-hour question about the safety of the new building against earthquakes. The architectural firm working with town officials on the new building assured town meeting voters that such issues have been looked at “very closely.”
Town Meeting approval now advances the $131 million proposal before voters December 9, who will be asked to approve the town’s largest ever debt exclusion --$86.6 million.
