Mascoma district towns to vote on high school renovation bond
If approved, the school district would take out three loans totaling $1,373,987.
"We need a 60 percent super majority to go forward with that bond," Andrew said. "It's for a comprehensive renovation of the existing Mascoma high school. It deals with improving the instructional spaces and creating enough spaces for all the teachers, students and programs. It improves access to the campus. It improves parking and some of the security to the building. It does some energy efficiency improvements to the building."
Last year, voters came close to passing the renovation, but the bond article only received 59 percent of the vote.
"The feedback we got, people thought the audition was too big and too much for the project. So we cut that down," Andrew said.
"We only need to borrow a small amount the first year for some permitting and to get some other things done," Andrew said.
After all three loans are taken out in 2016, the tax impact per $1,000 of assessed value for the towns would be $1.64 for Canaan, $1.03 for Dorchester, $1.05 for Enfield, $1.21 for Grafton and $1.74 for Orange.
