Hingham residents will have their voices heard again this weekend, as they head to the polls to approve, or reject, funding for a new middle school and to fund a $935,000 athletic fields project. A yes vote at a special town meeting Monday night paves the way for a referendum question to be put before residents this weekend, asking to fund a new $60.9 million dollar middle school. The $935,000 athletic fields project was also approved on Monday night. Proponents of the school project say now is the best time to build the school because of a 44% reimbursement from the Massachusetts School Building Authority. The projects need a majority vote Saturday to move forward. Polls will be open on Saturday from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.
