Carver: Voters take on school renovation funding at Special Town Meeting

Voters in Carver will decide the fate of three articles on the town’s Special Town Meeting warrant Monday night. The articles would fund buildings for the schools, the fire department and the police department.

Carver residents are being asked to appropriate as much as $45 million to renovate and join the Governor John Carver Elementary School and the Erwin K. Washburn Primary School. The good news? The state is expected to pick up a good part of the tab, reimbursing the town for 60 percent of the total cost.

Normally, a quorum of 75 is required to conduct Town Meeting business in Carver, but because the warrant articles include debt exclusions, a quorum of 150 is needed.
