Special Town Meeting Information

Residents voted to spend $157,000.00 from the Stabilization Fund to allow Weston Sampson engineers to complete the work required to reach the 25% Design Phase on the Monson Road project. The vote was 86 Yes and 12 No.

The Town is potentially eligible for a TIP grant of $3,452,400.00 from Mass DOT, to make repairs to Monson Road. However the Town must provide the initial engineering studies in order achieve a good score on the Tech Scoring day in February, and hopefully earn a place on the Department of Transportation 5-Year Plan. The total cost to the Town for the engingeering will be $340,000.00.
