Week ending - Dec 18, 2011

2011 is rapidly coming to a close and the new high school project is starting to heat up. The informational forum held on Nov 17th revealed that the cost estimates would be available early in December and they are. The total ticket price is $104.5M and with the MSBA kicking in over 50% reimbursement, the Franklin taxpayer will need to pony up $47M. This would be done via a debt exclusion (different from an operational override). More on the timeline for approval will be available as the MSBA is scheduled to provide their approval in January and then the ball is in Franklin's court.

Ahead of the vote a bunch of information should be made available and some of that started appearing this week. Updated photos, detailed project cost estimates and the average taxpayer bill are all now available for review and analysis.

The communications from the School Building Committee should increase as the time gets closer and the details become firm. In the meantime, keep in touch here and on Facebook. As information becomes available. I will share. If you have questions, send them along and I'll do my best to get them answered by trusted sources.

And as always:

  • If you like this, please tell your friends and neighbors 
  • If you don't like this, please tell me

This feedback loop is so important. Thank you for reading and sharing!
