Marshfield: Fate of proposed high school to be decided soon

Share Button

The fate of a new Marshfield High School rests with Thursday’s Town Meeting, followed by a ballot on Saturday on a proposed temporary property tax increase to pay for the project.

The Town Meeting article would authorize the town to fund its portion of the approximately $100 million construction cost, estimated at $55 million.

The rest would come from the state.

The property tax increase is estimated at about $100 for every $100,000 of assessed home value over a 20-year period.

Town Meeting starts at 7:00 p.m. Thursday at Marshfield High School and at Furnace Brook Middle School; residents may attend at either location.
