Bridgewater: Voters approve Prop 2 1/2 debt exclusion

Bridgewater voters give the green light to some much-needed repairs and renovations to buildings around town.

By a nearly 2-to-1 margin Saturday, residents approved a ballot question asking for a $5.3 million Proposition 2 ½ debt exclusion.

The money will pay for overhauling the Academy building and putting a new roof on Bridgewater Middle School.

The Central Fire Station will also get a new roof and the Memorial building will be made more handicapped-accessible.

Voter turnout was less than ten percent.
