Madison voters to decide on $89 million school renewal project, land buy

A resolution for a $89.2 million project that would build a new elementary school and update two other schools will be headed to referendum, after it was approved by the Board of Selectmen this week, following debate over how the project should be funded. The Madison School Renewal Plan would allocate $61,150,000 for the construction of a new pre-kindergarten through fifth grade school on Mungertown Road; $6.5 million for renovations and improvements for the conversion of Brown Intermediate School into a K-5 school; and $21,550,000 for improvements and upgrades to Polson Middle School. The resolution recommended the town finance the appropriation by issuing town bonds, notes or temporary notes not to exceed the proposed $89.2 million. Ultimately, the resolution for the $89.2 million school project passed the board unanimously.
