Medfield Town Meeting voters have shot down a $450,000 debt-exclusion override proposal that would have funded design plans and other costs associated with a new parks and recreation facility.

The override would have added about $30 per year to the average single-family home property tax bill, town officials said.

Also at Monday's Town 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. Officials said the town has enough cash on hand to pay for both of those projects without an override.
