Hanson: Special town meeting to vote on new school and community preservation articles

At tonight’s Hanson Special Town Meeting , voters will be asked to approve $58.4 million for a new Maquan Elementary School.

Also tonight, the Hanson Community Preservation Committee will be proposing a number of projects. Among them, $18,500 to be used by the Hanson Historic Commission to fund the purchase of materials to replace clapboards, windows and doors on the town-owned Bonney House located on High Street in the front of the former Plymouth County Hospital property.

Also, $46,620 to the Open Space Committee to be used toward the total purchase price of $129,500 for 115 acres of open space located off of West Washington Street. This property abuts several parcels of town-owned land adjacent to the Crystal Springs and is surrounded by wetlands.

And,
$90,000 to refurbish several of the town-owned baseball fields at the Botieri complex to bring them up to National Little League standards.

Special Town Meeting gets underway at the Hanson Middle School at 7:30 pm.

 

About David Skill

Dave Skill’s radio career began in the fall of 1964 when he arrived on the campus of Holy Cross College in Worcester, MA. Dave barely got his bags unpacked when he paid a visit to WCHC, the campus radio station. And, before he knew it, he was spending so much time as a disc jockey and news writer/reporter, it seemed like he was majoring in “radio” and minoring in academics at “The Cross”. As you might imagine, his grades reflected it! During his junior and senior years, he also worked weekends in news and as a disc jockey at WNEB, the CBS radio affiliate in Worcester at the time.
