March 6, 2014 at 3:14 am by ghedrington
A warrant article asking for $75,000 for the care and maintenance of the 1941 school building and cafeteria will go forward to voters at Londonâ€™s Town Meeting in May despite meeting hurdles. Selectman Peter Bianchi said the project was â€śwoefully underfundedâ€ť at Monday Selectboardâ€™s meeting and the Warrant Article was not recommended by the Budget Committee on Wednesday night by a vote of 6-3. However Selectboard Chair Tina Helms said she believes in democracy and that the public needs to have a chance to vote on the project. The 1941 Building Committee is planning on making the building a community center and raised over $76,000 since last May for the project. Casey Busio of the 1941Committee says they want to find the best possible plan for the center. There will be two public forums before Town Meeting, the first is on Tuesday April 15th at 7:00 p.m. and the second on Saturday May 3rd at 9:00 am both are at Whipple Memorial Town Hall. You can contact Casey at email@example.com if you are interested in the project or if you wish to make a donation.
