That the Town vote to approve the article as written. Voted 5-0.

VOTE OF THE TOWN MEETING: The vote of the Town Meeting was to approve the article as written as declared by the Moderator.

THERE IS NO ARTICLE 68

ARTICLE 69: BURGESS ELEMENTARY SCHOOL DESIGN FEE To see if the Town will vote to appropriate, borrow or transfer from available funds, THREE HUNDRED FIVE THOUSAND DOLLARS ($305,000) to be expended under the direction of the School Building Committee for the purpose of paying costs of architectural and engineering fees for design, project management, surveys, geotechnical investigations, owner’s related expenses and contingency costs associated with remodeling, reconstructing and making extraordinary repairs to the Burgess Elementary School, located at 45 Burgess School Road, Sturbridge, Massachusetts (the “Project”). The proposed repair project would materially extend the useful life of the school and preserve an asset that otherwise is capable of supporting the required educational program. The MSBA’s grant program is a non-entitlement, discretionary program based on need, as determined by the MSBA, and any project costs the Town incurs in excess of any grant approved by and received from the MSBA shall be the sole responsibility of the Town. Any grant that the Town may receive from the MSBA for the Project shall not exceed the lesser of (1) fifty-one percent (51 %) of eligible, approved project costs, as determined by the MSBA, or (2) the total maximum grant amount determined by the MSBA.
