Torrington committee combs through school project to keep costs down

When the School Building Committee last met, estimates for the new middle-high school project showed a total cost of $186.4 million, an increase of nearly $27 million over the $159 million voters approved in November 2020. Several City Council members are concerned by that increase, and said the committee must not allow the project to exceed the amount approved by voters. “Residents approved spending $159 million, and we’re hearing it’s much more,” said council member Paul Cavagnero. He called for more accountability and direct reporting from the committee on the project’s spending plans.
