Will Sandwich's $30M public safety building pass muster with voters?
This is the biggest capital project that has been proposed since the Oak Ridge and Forestdale schools were built. I invite everyone to comment on the proposed project and to register your educated guess as to what is likely to happen at the May town meeting and at the ballot on the following Thursday.
In the poll at the top right of this page, you can log your guesses both for the town meeting vote and the subsequent ballot question. If town meeting approves the project, a vote at the ballot must also pass to allow for the Proposition 2&1/2 debt exclusion. If town meeting turns down the project, voters could still approve the debt exclusion at the ballot and a special town meeting could be held to try once again to sway the voters.
