This week, the Public Safety Building Committee presented updated project costs to the Board of Selectmen. The Chair made clear that while there are cost overages “on paper” members are still striving to stay within their original budget presented to voters. He clarified that figure is $2 million below the “contingency” they included in the voter approved budget allowance.

During the discussion that followed, it became clear that some members disagreed with a decision not to include costs for a related project in their budget. At issue is relocation of the clubhouse for the adjacent St. Mark’s Golf Course.
