Wellesley Town Meeting Monday night voted yes overwhelmingly to allow voters to decide whether a $3.345 million override should be approved to fund school programs and other town services.
Committee 21 gives a blow-by-blow account of the “Gap List,” those budget items that will be cut should the override fail to be approved by the voters. $2.8 million of those cuts would come out of the school budget including technology programming, professional staffing for classrooms, and school library assistants.
WHAT’S IN THE GAP LIST?
Town Meeting will go at it again tonight at 7:30 p.m. at Wellesley High School’s Babson Auditorium to take care of additional business, most notably to vote on whether the the Town will acquire 494 Washington St. and to vote on whether the Town will allow licenses to be granted for no more that 3 food stores and no more than 3 specialty stores for the sale of wine and beer. Here’s a scorecard on Town Meeting items decided upon so far.
